A huge thank you to everyone in the constituency who kindly donated your warm coats to help newly arrived refugees in the constituency. I continue to work with Nighat Khan and New Vision 4 Women to ensure everyone staying at the Dudley Hotel has the basics and a better start. As well as ensuring they have access to healthcare, education and food, we’ve managed to supply most of the families with the essentials.
I was hoping to arrange a Winter party to build up the bonds of solidarity in our local community in early December. Sadly, the arrival of the Omicron variant means this was too risky to push ahead with. In lieu of this, I’m hoping to organise a small collection of gifts – with priority given to the refugee children. The intention is to distribute these at a winter party early in the new year (Covid permitting).
