In September a group of us will be walking 21 miles (the width of the English Channel ) in two days - including a hike up Mount Snowdon. We are looking to raise £1,200 for Fences & Frontiers. This will help Fences provide more walks, talks and trips for refugees and asylum seekers in London - giving them hope, escape and friendship in a time they need it most.
The covid-19 pandemic has been a tough time for everyone. Refugees and asylum seekers have particularly suffered, many cases have been put on hold (in effect putting their lives on hold) and many support services have disappeared. There is a unique loneliness and fear that comes with living in a city of strangers while your life sits in other peoples hands.
This situation has been made even worse by the hysteria, whipped up by the right wing press and polticians, about a small number if dinghies crossing the channel.
Fences and frontiers exists to make London a more welcoming places for asylum seekers and refugees. To provide activities such as walks and museum trips that give people natural opportunities to make friends, practice English and as much as possible live a normal life.
You can find out more about Fences & Frontiers here: www.fencesandfrontiers.org
Please give whatever you can!
From the walkers: Neil, Lewis, Kevin, Jenna, Isis, Sam - and from the wider Fences team.
Well done y'all
Best of luck!
