Refugee Week 2021

For Refugee Week 2021 we are excited to announce the launch of The Sanctuary Candle in partnership with our friends at CandleCalm.
Crammed with Bergamot, Pine and Cedarwood essential oils, The Sanctuary candle represents light in the face of darkness and a beacon to light the way home. £5 from the sale of every candle is donated to MRA to support refugee projects here in the UK and overseas. Available to buy online and at selected stores in and around Marlow. 

To mark REFUGEE WEEK 2021, we have been ON THE MOVE for refugees!

Whether you WALK, CYCLE, RUN or SWIM – keep track of the number of kilometres you cover in the month running up to the end of Refugee Week (20th June 2021). We will then total the overall number of kilometres and see how far we can get along our 4,228 km virtual route from Damascus in Syria to Marlow.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Visit the MARLOW REFUGEE ACTION ON THE MOVE fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving: Join our team and make a donation, or sponsor another participant – we suggest £10
  2. We would love it if you set yourself an ambitious distance target and a fundraising goal. It’s really easy to set up via Virgin Money Giving, on your own or as a team. Share your page on social media and encourage friends and family to support you!
  3. If you are setting up a school team page, we recommend you donate a minimum of £1 per child
  4. Keep track of the kilometres you cover during between 20th May and 20th June. Log your kilometres regularly via our short contact form:  
  5. Share photos on your social media and tag us: @marlowrefugeeaction (Facebook) @marlowrefugee (Instagram) and #onthemoveforrefugees. Alternatively email your photos to and we can post on your behalf!

Let’s raise as much as we can to support those who are on the move because of conflict, war and persecution.
