About this group

fund-raising quiz for Amnesty
Amnesty fund-raising quiz in Minehead

Our local group is based in West Somerset, drawing supporters from Minehead and the surrounding villages. Some regularly attend our meetings and events; others keep in touch by post and email.

New members are always welcome!

We aim to:

  • raise local awareness of Amnesty's world-wide work for human rights
  • send appeals to overseas governments on behalf of individual prisoners of conscience
  • support AIUK's current campaigns
  • fundraise in support of Amnesty International's activities
  • increase our knowledge of human rights issues

We meet

  • once a month for an event, meeting or planning get-together
  • most of our events and meetings take place in the Quaker Meeting House, Bancks Street, Minehead or in the Beach Hotel on Minehead's sea-front
  • we do not meet in August or December but we may have a social event around those times instead
  • for details of our forthcoming events please see the list of Diary Dates in our latest newsletter
