Syrian Refugee Project


The steering group for the South Cheltenham team have now submitted their application for community sponsorship of a vulnerable Syrian refugee family to the Home Office. We await their comments. We hope we will then have some idea of when we can expect to welcome the family in Cheltenham.

St Peter’s is the official sponsoring charity, so will be acting as banker and record keeper. The property for the family has now been vacated, and the steering group have had a preliminary visit. This will be followed up by a visit to list requirements for furniture etc. So watch this space for any requests next time! For further information, please contact me at:  rkerrwilson@aol.com.
