The collection is being organised by Welcoming Refugees in Crediton (WRC).
WRC is a non-religious local volunteer group that supports refugees to settle into the Crediton community and that advocates for refugee issues more widely.
Many people in the Crediton area have responded with warmth and generosity to the needs of new people in our community.
There is an ongoing need for practical support for refugees, including landlords who are willing to rent to those with no tenancy history, employers willing to employ people with qualifications from other countries, and general recognition of the challenges faced by people who have been uprooted.
WRC would like to thank Keith Barker and Kendra Ezekiel for publicity support, drivers Joel and Jon and also the firms Rose Removals and Projexe Engineering for helping with packing/transport.
