Diocesan Refugee Project -next collection Sunday 3rd February -toilet rolls and biscuits

A big Thank You for the generous response in February. 93 toilet rolls and 43 packets of biscuits in all that month.
The next collection of these is next Sunday 3 March.
Asylum seekers who have been refused leave to stay lose their homes and all Government funding and are effectively destitute. They may subsequently have their applications granted on appeal but this can take a very long time. There is a Fund to provide some financial support to the destitute and all contributions are gratefully received. If you would like to contribute to this fund please consider starting a standing order or increasing your current one or sending a cheque.
Cheques should be made out to D.H&N Destitute Asylum Fund and sent to Leah Stephenson ,Our Lady of Lourdes Deaf Centre. 2 Summerhill Grove, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 6EE. Standing orders can be set up using the following link http://www.rcdhn.org.uk/social_ concerns/justice_ and_ peace.php or forms are available on the noticeboard.
Please also see the Refugee Project Spring 2019 newsletter on our notice board.
