Refugee Collection

On Saturday, 1 October, TWR was delighted to be helping out with a big collection of supplies desperately needed by refugees currently living in camps in Europe and the Middle East. Organised by one of our members, Fred Long, the collection was a huge success: more than 150 people turned up to the Age Concern hut on Bradford Street on the day, dropping off clothes, shoes, bedding and toiletries. All the items were taken to a warehouse run by Tunbridge Wells-based charity RefugEase; from there they will be sorted and sent to the camps where they are needed.

There will be sorting days on the 13th and 16th October. Can you spare a couple of hours? Follow our Facebook page or Twitter for more news.
