After 18 months working in refugee camps in Greece, we did a series of talks around the UK and had an overwhelmingly supportive response.

Our main priority was to explain to groups around the country how important their donations and support had been and what a small group of committed volunteers can achieve.

We also wanted to highlight that there is still a crisis in Greece and the number of refugees globally is still rising at a frightening rate.

Thank you to everyone who helped and attended one of our talks.
