WELCOMING SANCTUARY SEEKERS IN ABINGDON

HOST ABINGDON

WELCOMING SANCTUARY SEEKERS IN ABINGDON

A public meeting to be held at St Ethelwold’s House, 30 East St Helen Street, Abingdon OX14 5EB

Tuesday 26th January 7.00 p.m.

The migrant crisis is one of the defining issues of our time.  This meeting is for people who want to explore practical responses to the desperate plight of asylum seekers and refugees who arrive in our area.  Temporary accommodation is needed and we will hear about local charities that support families to make a room available.  For those who can donate money, St Ethelwold’s has established a fund to make a room available on an on-going basis.  There are other practical needs such as language lessons and food donations. The meeting will include a speaker from Oxford City of Sanctuary.

Please come and see how you can help.

Please let the office at St Ethelwold’s House know if you are coming so that we can arrange a larger room if necessary – 01235 555486 ethelwoldhouse@btinternet.com
