A bit about us
We are a small group of friends and acquaintances working together as a Community Sponsorship group in West Penwith to raise money to re-settle a family affected by the refugee crisis in the Middle East. Community sponsorship is a government-supported initiative which allows refugees to flee war-torn countries to resettle in our communities and rebuild their lives. We are raising £9000 as a minimum target through fundraising and events over the coming months. This will enable us to support and welcome a family to Penwith and to ensure their arrival is as smooth and welcoming as possible. The money will be used for many things such as securing a property for them to live in, English lessons, buying clothing and school uniforms. We will provide ongoing support and encouragement to the family, both financially and through befriending, so that they can access employment, education, healthcare and other community services. Our goal is to ensure that the family lives secure, independent and empowering lives in the UK. Any donations we receive will make one family’s dream a reality & hopefully many more in the future!
