Refugee Week 15-21 June 2020

The Minehead AI Group is marking Refugee Week rather differently this year, owing to the lockdown and physical distancing restrictions. So instead of a big AmnesTea or other event, we are suggesting to members that they invite a friend or two to share a cup of tea in their gardens and make a small donation to our local West Somerset Refugee Support Group. The Support Group is still hoping that it will be able to arrange visits to the seaside and short holidays later in the summer for Syrian refugees settled in Bridgwater, Taunton and Wellington, as they have done for the past two years. If members don't have a garden, they could arrange to meet a friend on the sea-front for a take away cup of tea or coffee instead! 

For information on how to make a donation, please phone 01643 821209.
