A heartfelt thank you for all your donations and orders supporting our August fundraiser for Refugee Support. We smashed our target, raising over £275!
With a flurry of orders at the end of the month, we’ve decided to keep donations open for a week or two to give everyone the opportunity to contribute. Because Refugee Support is a volunteer led organisation, every penny goes direct to helping the people that need it most and even the smallest of donations helps.
Refugee Support have responded with this lovely message:
Thank you, truly! To you for this beautiful initiative and to all the supporters who make it possible for us to continue doing our work.
We chose this charity because of their “aid with dignity” mission to helping some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people on our continent. Read more about why we decided to help.
Earlier this month we wrote about one of the projects that particularly resonated with us, the sewing room at their centre in Nicosia, Cyprus. We thought you’d like to see their latest post showing the amazing things that are coming our of the sewing room:

From our Sewing Room in Nicosia to the world! We keep on producing items to sell online in time for Christmas. Great pieces continue to be created by the ladies and we're so excited about this project. Supporting this initiative is one of the many tasks our volunteers can do at the Dignity Centre. Join us?
(Yep! That’s some crochet!)
We are so thrilled to be helping to fund this and Refugee Support’s other initiatives, and have had such a great response sharing their stories and projects. We’ll be continuing to support the organisation and promoting their work.
If you’ve been inspired by what you’ve read and would like to do more, maybe you can! Refugee Support are currently recruiting volunteers for their new centre in Cyprus, and creative/making skills are very much needed. If you’re in a position to take a couple of weeks away it could be an incredible experience.
