On the 1st of February both the children and parents learnt about AFRIL. Action for Refgugees in Lewisham. Thomas Martin from the organisation presented information about the experience of these families, and how AFRIL supports both adults and children, particularly those who speak English as a second language. He highlighted how as a community we can support each other and challenge negative stereotypes of refugee and asylum seekers. The children raised £348 through wearing their own clothes and donating £1. This money will help AFRIL support our local families who access their service. Well done Rushey Green!.
