Friday 21st June 2019
This week our Student Union representatives gave everyone the joy of cake, in aid of Refugee week 2019. A bake sale is always popular, but they were also raising awareness of the plight of refugees as we were invited to discover the experiences of displacement that are found in our families, neighbourhoods and history.
The theme of Refugee Week 2019, ‘You, me and those who came before’, is an invitation to explore the lives of refugees – and those who have welcomed them – throughout the generations.
People escaping war and persecution have been welcomed by communities in the UK for hundreds of years, and their stories and contributions are all around us. From the Jewish refugees of the 1930s to people fleeing Vietnam in the 1970s, Kosovans in the 1990s to those arriving today; they are part of who we all are.
The final total from the various fundraising events across the College will be announced next week...
