On Sunday another group is out raising money for community settlement of refugees. The movement is taking off like a fire. Since June this year, one by one, five towns have set up teams to settle Syrian families at their own expense. The ‘Croeso’ teams (Croeso is the Welsh word for welcome) will provide homes, meet the family at the airport, provide English lessons, counselling and translation, seek jobs and training and explain everything. They will integrate them into the community.
Vegware pays the group’s membership of the charity which works with the home office allowing us to do community sponsorship.
