Friday December 11th, a large number of the Merton Welcomes Refugee family met to host a Christmas Meal. The intention was both to offer the hand of welcome to refugees, and also to continue to build and deepen relationships with those who care for creating a warm welcome.
Thank you to local residents who cooked, served, hosted and came up with new ways to prepare to welcome refugees in Merton.
Many local councillors came along too – not for any political reason, simply to show a unified welcome.
At this event the latest appeal was launched. Nappies!! Morden Baptist Church has offered to be a drop off point for nappies. More information and current needs are on our Facebook page now.
