Proud2Be Jumble Sale to Support Refugees & Asylum Seekers
In March 2016, Proud2Be hosted a jumble sale raise funds for two local initiatives that support refugees and asylum seekers.
The event raised £422 pounds, which will be split evenly between Embracing Refugees and Beyond Borders Totnes & District. Items that were not sold on the day were distributed between three local charity shops and several bags of warm clothes are currently making their way to Calais.
Proud2Be co-founder Mat said: “We are thrilled that we were able to raise funds for such an important cause, and one that is very close to our hearts. It is also our way of sending out the message that we are proud to stand in solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers in the South West and beyond. We would like to thank Dot Spink, the volunteers and all those who donated, for making the event such a success.”
