Our first charity of the week during the exhibition coincides with Refugee Week. We chose Refugee Resource, which relieves distress, improves well-being and facilitates the integration of refugees and asylum seekers in Oxfordshire, by providing psychological, social and practical support. We wanted to work with a refugee charity because of the importance of welcome, trust and generosity to the on form ethos. We have heard from Refugee Resource that, in these Covid 19 days, counselling appointments, classes and mentoring are continuing, making a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people. Refugee Resource is also working with community groups to organise supplies.
Donations would be particularly welcome at this difficult time.
