I’m taking part in Miles for Refugees – will you sponsor me? I'm aiming to cycle 1000 miles this September. Although I regularly commute to work by bike, this is still around double the average distance that I usually cycle each month. The figure represents the distance that a refugee would travel to reach Athens from Damascus.
Together we can help the British Red Cross to support refugees in the UK.
While refugees adjust to life in the UK they need help in a number of ways – from providing emergency provisions for those facing severe hardship, to giving orientation support and friendly advice to those settling into an unfamiliar place. Through Miles for Refugees, every mile I travel during September will help support some of the most vulnerable people in the UK.
Last year the Red Cross supported over 30,000 refugees, asylum seekers, vulnerable migrants and their dependants. Your sponsorship can help many more – thank you.
