A local charity is hosting a film night fundraiser in Amersham this month.
Chiltern Welcomes was founded in April of last year by then Amersham Town Mayor, councillor Mark Roberts. The organisation aims to help refugee families find work and school places through a network of volunteers.
The charity will be showing Ken Loach’s acclaimed new film, The Old Oak, at Beacon School.
Cost of a ticket cost £20, which includes a snack homemade by a local Syrian refugee family.
A spokesperson for the charity said: “We are working alongside the council to assist refugees in our area. The funds we raise will be used to help to pay for things that are not funded or provided for by the council to help the refugees settle quicker, find work, and ultimately become self-sufficient and contribute to our society. So, these might be things like bicycles to travel to work, broadband internet, TV license, top up on driving lessons, interview training etc.”
The evening will be held on February 29 at 7.30pm. To purchase tickets, head to https://chilternwelcomes.org.uk/chiltern-welcomes-refugee-charity/news/updates/
