SHARE – Supporting Homeless Assisting Refugees Everywhere
Report from Louise Edwards
Along with two other friends, I have recently set up a charity (currently awaiting charitable status) called SHARE – Supporting Homeless Assisting Refugees Everywhere.
We are currently collecting donations of clothes, blankets, sleeping bags, sturdy footwear and other items to provide relief to the local homeless communities and to refugees fleeing war torn countries out in Southern Europe.
We are also collecting monetary donations and seeking people to volunteer their time. Time can be used to help sort through donations at our warehouse in Flint, to assist in collecting donations and to help in the setting up of fundraising events.
We have a team of volunteers who have recently returned from working with refugees on the tiny Greek island of Leros. We are planning another trip there at the end of November and are keen to recruit more people to join our Leros Volunteer Team.
If you think you are able to support SHARE in even the smallest way, we would love to hear from you. Please find the link to our new website http://www.shareaid.co.uk/
also our Facebook page – SHARE
