A group of either very brave or stupid people have decided they want jump (abseil) of the top of the Jury Inn, Derby, in the aim to raise a whole load of money for Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity.
It will be on the 12th November so please come along and show your support, we will need it......
And also show support by donating some money to this great cause who all the participants are doing this crazy abseil for.
Who is Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity?
Over the last year DRS has:
- Been involved in many aid trips to Calais and Dunkirk, delivering food, tents, sleeping bags, clothing and footwear to refugees living in camps.
- Funded volunteer trips to Northern France and to the shores of Greece where our people have helped put up tents, worked in aid warehouses, distributed aid to refugees and worked on the shores of Greece helping to rescue those travelling to Europe across the sea in very dangerous conditions.
- Filled 3 containers of aid that have been directly distributed in Syria.
- Funded other aid organisations across Europe and the Middle East working specifically with women and children fleeing war and persecution.
We want to do more! Over the last year we have developed a strong team, often working in difficult conditions, doing what we can to support refugees. We need ongoing funding so we can carry out regular aid runs to Northern France. As the Summer is drawing to a close, we know that winter will bring terrible conditions to those living in tents just across our border. They will be cold, wet and hungry. Let's not wait for our politicians to act to help these people, let's get on with it ourselves!
