We are a Community Sponsorship group based in West Penwith, Cornwall.

A bit about us
We are a small group of friends and acquaintances working together as a Community Sponsorship group in West Penwith to raise money to re-settle a family affected by the refugee crisis in the Middle East. Community sponsorship is a government-supported initiative which allows refugees to flee war-torn countries to resettle in our community and rebuild their lives. We are raising £9000 as a minimum target through fundraising and events over the coming months. This will enable us to support and welcome a family to Penwith and to ensure their arrival is as smooth and welcoming as possible. The money will be used for many things such as securing a property for them to live in, helping them learn English, buying clothing and school uniforms and everything that is involved in the application, their arrival and their journey from once they arrive. Any donations we receive will make one family’s dream a reality & hopefully many more in the future!
