Welcome a Family this Christmas

Welcome a Family this Christmas

Everyone involved in Community Sponsorship of refugees finds it a rewarding and positive experience which they would love others to share in., This is why Sponsor Refugees is launching a social media campaign this Christmas in which groups who have already welcomed a family or are well on their way to doing so send a message to others encouraging them to consider doing a Community Sponsorship themselves.

Groups from around the country are taking part, including Old Swan Welcomes in Liverpool. In their message this group, from a relatively deprived part of Liverpool and with members from all faiths and none, said: β€œWe’ve loved welcoming our family from Syria to our neighbourhood. We urge anyone who is concerned about the plight of refugees to consider starting a Community Sponsorship Group. We promise it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!”

Meanwhile, the Falmouth & Penryn Welcome Refugee Families Group in Cornwall said in their Christmas message: β€œWe’ve just welcomed a lovely family from Syria to our neighbourhood. It’s been a wonderful community affirming experience. We urge anyone who is concerned about the plight of refugees this Christmas to consider starting a Community Sponsorship Group. We promise it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

Tweet your Christmas message and tag @SponsorRefugees so that we can share it far and wide - or send your photos and messages to communitysponsorship@citizensuk.org
