An Urgent Christmas Appeal

As you are probably aware – we are at present self-funded and entirely dependent on you – the good people of Colchester area to raise funds. All our work is carried out on a voluntary basis. We currently have a family in huge need of financial support. They are an asylum-seeking family who have faced torture in their home country but due to unscrupulous lawyers this was not even mentioned in their initial asylum hearing. They are now reapplying, and we are hopeful that they will have a positive outcome to their case. However, for those who are unaware – they currently have no right to work or to claim benefits. Many good people have been helping them. The case should progress in January and they will be eligible for basic funding then. In the meantime, any donations would help them get through the break with their 3 kids without the stress of eviction and hunger hanging over them.

If you can help, please reference ‘Family’ and make a donation via our gogetfunding page
