Christmas is coming... and following the heartwarming success of our last festive fundraiser, for the children of Al Arroub refugee camp, we're asking for a repeat performance this year please.
The aim is for 100 people to each donate £10 during the month of November. The funds will then be sent and used to take a large group of the children on a day trip to Bethlehem during the festive period, where they will visit the local sites (including the spectacular Christmas tree and lights), enjoy dance and music performances from local groups, have a lovely lunch and receive souvenirs/treats from their adventure.
One of the organisers from the last trip reported back:
"... it was a wonderful and exciting trip to Bethlehem and was a huge success. The children were in dire need to leave the camp, even for a few hours... The younger children were completely stunned by the huge decorated Christmas tree in the square - they've never seen anything like it. They were so happy that many came back asking for another trip soon... "
Let's not disappoint them!
