As an organisation, we rely entirely on grants and donations, so we have been very moved recently by all the generous people making donations to help vulnerable refugees in Suffolk, and by all those who are putting such time and effort into raising funds for our work. Three people in particular deserve our special thanks:
Kate Billingham, our wonderful volunteer, is pedalling the 60-mile Suffolk Sunrise cycle ride on Sunday 8th May. We hope she has a tailwind all the way! You can sponsor Kate here – every donation will help when the legs start to burn!
Our friend Anna from La Tour Cycle Cafe had her head shaved recently in aid of refugees. The event was covered by BBC Radio Suffolk and you can read more about it here. We hope the weather warms up soon or that someone has bought Anna a hat!
Finally, we were really touched when the family of Steve Rose, an Ipswich man and champion of the underdog who died recently, contacted us to say they were asking for donations for refugees in his memory. The money raised will improve the lives of refugees in Suffolk – a fitting tribute to a generous man. You can read a feature about Steve in the East Anglian Daily Times here, and donate to the fundraising appeal here.
