As Refugee Week 2020 draws to a close, everyone at Marlow Refugee Action would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all who got involved!

With the dust now settling on Refugee Week 2020, we can look back on a week of mass involvement and campaigning by all which will enable us to continue helping people displaced by conflict and war.

Through your efforts we collectively raised public awareness of the plight of Refugees across the globe as well as a phenomenal amount through your generous donations; the proceeds of which will go directly to those most in need in the UK, Calais and Samos.

Across Relay 4 Refugees, Solidarity Sleepout and our Syrian Supper Night In, you helped us exceed all of our targets and raise a total of £1985!

Breaking the fundraising down across our the campaigns, the figures are as follows:

Relay 4 Refugees – £770
Solidarity Sleepout  – £385
Syrian Supper Night In –  £539
Plant Stall – £291

For those who missed out on the live demonstration, provided by the wonderful Imad for the Syrian Supper Night In, don’t worry, there’s still a chance to try these original recipes yourself!

A recording of the stream can be found via this link and the recipe for Tahiniat Beitenjan has kindly been made downloadable here as a PDF so you can continue the cooking at home.

Keep an eye across our various channels for more videos and updates on the impact of your donations and to see what’s next for Marlow Refugee Action.

Once again, thank you all for your contributions and participation, together we’ve made a real impact on the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
