Help for Asylum Seekers
147 asylum seekers have been recently housed by the Home Office in our area. These men, women and children have no family or support in the UK. Only food and housing is provided, with little financial support, eg £5 a week for men.
A collection of specific items needed by the refugees is taking place on Thursday 11th June from 5.30pm - 7pm at the front entrance of Studley Methodist Church.
Please can all donations be new or nearly new items.
Please note we are unable to accept anything not on this list.
