‘ROAD TO HOPE’ FUNDRAISER
We are a local group who have travelled to Greece twice already to do vital humanitarian work with the refugees there. We are setting off again on the 20th April with a team of 6 and will be fund-raising for the next couple of weeks. We will be doing a musical fund-raising coffee morning on Sunday 17th April in the community centre in Kinvara. We would be delighted if people can attend and if anyone would like to bake some cakes or biscuits it would be absolutely wonderful. My phone number is 087 6700448 for people to find out details about cake baking etc. The plight of the thousands of refugees now stuck in Greece is never far from our minds and we aim to help in any way possible when we are on the ground in Chios. We fly on the 20th April and this time there will be a team of 6 of us! We have set up a crowdfunding campaign where people can donate easily – https://chuffed.org/project/road-to-hope-april2016
