Demonstrating generosity outside of our community
Thank you to Sam Cooke for delivering an informative and inspiring speech at today's assembly. Sam is a local resident who was inspired to help refugees in camps in Eastern Greece following the surge of refugees escaping war and travelling to Europe over the past number of years.
Sam chose to help and set up his charity Aid Behind the Wire which launched in March 2017. The charity now ship essential non-food items to these refugee camps, ensuring specific items go to specific camps to offer the refugees what they need. Sam enlightened us with his inspiration behind setting up the charity, the logistics as to how items go from us to the camps and the kind of items that are needed and why.
Our collection at Davenies this week will be shipped to one of these camps, helping refugees who are desperately in need. Thank you for your support.
