UEA University of Sanctuary initiative members will be walking/running a combined distance of over 100km on the last weekend of Refugee week, 20th & 21st June 2020, to raise money to help local sanctuary seekers stay connected during the pandemic.
The Covid-19 pandemic has isolated and displaced us all. However, for Sanctuary Seekers the effects of the current pandemic are even more drastically felt, due to a lack of digital resources, phone credit and data.
Local Norfolk organisations supporting Sanctuary Seekers have done an incredible job to adapt their services, by moving support sessions and classes online, but these services can only be accessed if service users have the means to do so.
All donations raised will be put towards key items, such as mobile phones and phone credit.

If you are looking to find a way to help support local sanctuary seekers at this uncertain time, please consider supporting the current fundraising appeal organised by the Norwich British Red Cross Refugee Centre and NIP (Norwich Integration Partnership). These key organisations have set up a fundraising page to enable the groups to get essential items, including cleaning items and food, to the local sanctuary seekers they support
