Refugee Week 2022

Wow! What a few weeks that was!

Refugee Week 2022 went so fast, but it was a brilliant, busy and beautiful time, with loads of events and challenges happening across Berkshire over the course of four weeks (more of a Refugee Month, really). 

Thank you so much to every one of you that joined us at any of our Refugee Week events!

We were humbled to have so much public support for the art exhibitions, workshops, award show, football tournament, community picnic and film screenings of Flee and Hostile.

Thank you to all our volunteers, supporters and staff that worked immensely hard to make all of the diverse and exciting events happen over the course of nearly three weeks.

Another massive thank you to every one of you that took part in our Seven Day Challenge, completing small actions to learn about and support refugees here in Berkshire.
