Dear FORS-ters, HAPPY NEW YEAR. FORS is back in action and we hope to have another successful year of fundraising.
On Friday 12 dexterous FORS supporters got together to make Ponchos in support of Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group (CAMCRAG). A busy day of cutting, sewing and packing saw 40 ponchos ready to go to France and these will were delivered to CAMCRAG this week. The material for the ponchos was paid for by the remainder of the amazing £987 raised from the winter walk at Great Glemham in December. The ponchos are taken to the Help Refugees warehouse in Calais and are distributed from there throughout France. Last winter CAMCRAG made 1,800 ponchos, which are put together from fleece material and help keep people warm in the bitter winter months. They are aiming for the same total this year.
We are planning events for the spring and summer including another fundraising walk and a litrerary gathering. We will keep you posted.
Thank you for your continued support
Deborah, Alison, Sharon, Fraser and Oliver
