A New Family

We have recently learnt that the Home Office has approved our application to sponsor a second refugee family of 6. They will arrive towards the end of September.

At present we are busy preparing the house and making the arrangements to support the family in the weeks and months after they arrive.

We have had a wonderful response to our appeal for household items to make the house comfortable and welcoming for them. Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated.

We still need a few items

chest of draws - to fit space H86cm x W100cm x D43cm

a taller bedside table or small cupboard (approx 36" high)


6 bedside lights

rotary clothes line

garden furniture (foldable and light as it needs to be carried up steps)

gardening tools

2 doormats

washing up bowl

long net curtains (70"width and 80" drop)

70" curtain rail

coat stand

2 shoe racks


(We are always in need of bicycles both for the new arrivals, and for the community of refugees who are settling in the area)

If you are able to help, please email
