Refugee Week meeting, Friday 23 June 2017, 7.30pm
at Sutton Quaker Meeting House, Cedar Road, Sutton
Sutton for Sanctuary, Sutton for Peace & Justice and Refugee & Migrant Network Sutton invite you to a meeting to hear how refugees contribute to our community and how we can make them welcome here.
Hear the story of the Basque children who came to live in Sutton during the Spanish Civil War.
Listen to first-hand accounts of four people living and working in Sutton who came here as refuges and were helped to settle by Refugee and Migrant Network Sutton.
Learn about the Sutton project that is part of the Community Sponsorship Scheme, under which community groups support Syrian refugees coming to Britain to help meet the UK Government’s commitment to take 20,000 from camps in the Middle East.
And find out what you can do to help today’s refugees find a welcome and establish a new home here.
No entry charge, donations will be taken.
