We are in unprecedented times – having spent 10 years building a grassroots movement and an extensive network of support, in the past two weeks we have seen virtually everything closed for the duration of the pandemic.
Though the drop-ins have been cut back, our grassroots are strong.
Today, Wakefield District City of Sanctuary closed the Quaker Meeting House door and transferred the Asylum Seekers Support Fund to the Clothing Store. Until further developments, the Clothing Store will quietly become the hub for practical support.
Carefully and responsibly we will find ways to continue to offer a welcome to new asylum seekers and refugees. Perhaps instead of offering real smiles we can find ways to offer electronic similes 😊 I’m sure you will think of many ways Wakefield District City of Sanctuary can go forward positively in these challenging times.
Please take care, stay safe and well and many thanks for your ongoing support.
All good wishes for now, Linda Fielding, Wakefield District City of Sanctuary
