Lambeth Council has announced that it will resettle 5 more refugee families from Syria and the Middle East bringing the total to 28 families.
This followed Leader of the Council Cllr Lib Peck attending our Refugees Welcome party at Church of the Holy Spirit, Clapham.
In making the announcement Cllr Peck said:
“The support these families are receiving from our communities is incredible. Everyone has pitched in, opening their homes and their hearts to demonstrate their moving commitment to our shared humanity. I’m particularly grateful to Lambeth Citizens who have done so much to co-ordinate and support this community activity”.
