We continue to reflect on what is happening in the world around us, nationally and internationally. All of the current issues are starting to affect everyone here at home. We understand all of these issues as it affects us all. We are keen to ensure that those who are worst-off in our society and those we help through the project, those seeking asylum in the UK and new refugees, that they are not forgotten in this period. One big difference that can be made is to offer a gift aid in support of your donations. If you are a tax payer in the UK please complete a form here, or you can request one from our treasurer Marjory: marjory.knowles@gmail.com or by phone: 07929 343418.

And the need for this support continues; in the last month we have welcomed a further 33 (thirty-three) new clients in need of food to supplement their meagre allowance. The need for toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gels, deodorants, shampoo, conditioners and washing powders as well as cooking oil, coffee and rice is as strong as ever. The full list of items required is here.

We are grateful for all the help; spiritual, physical and financial. The details of our bank account (DHN Justice & Peace Refugee Project) can be found on our webpage. If your donation is by cheque please send this to St Vincent’s Centre, New Bridge Street, Newcastle NE1 2TQ for the attention of Azad Hasan. Please remember to include a contact name and address when sending in a financial donation to the centre and please remember about the possibility of Gift-Aiding.

For more details about our work and how you can assist, please contact Azad Hasan by email: azad.hasan@diocesehn.org.uk or tel: 07407 091184 or visit our webpage.

Thank you.
