ACT OF KINDNESS: Chorleywood residents help raise money during Refugee Week 

 Published on: 23rd June 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

#Chorleywood4Refugees came up with an alternative to their usual pop up cafe at Chorleywood station during Refugee Week to raise money for charity Safe Passage.

Over the past three years, students at local primary schools have been turning up at the station delighting commuters with their pop up cafe.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic the organisers had to think of how to continue fundraising on Refugee Week (June 15-21) as not many commuters were expected at the station this year.

They began offering people the chance to order a takeaway cream tea for two to give to someone they love or appreciate as a #SimpleAct of kindness.

The tea was free but donations to the charity were encouraged to ensure that refugee children have a safe passage to sanctuary and safety. 

Chorleywood Pop-up for Refugees wrote on their Facebook page: “What an amazing response to the cream teas. We’ve still got some delivering to do but the support has been incredible and we’ve raised a whopping £3200 for Safe Passage so far!

“Thank you to everyone who has taken part and donated. The bakers, the box decorators, the deliverers, and the eaters. We couldn’t have done it without you all.”
