International Women's Day

DRS has a stall at this exciting event. More details from the main organisers…

“This is an annual event organised by a non-profit group of volunteers - by the community, for the community; the event brings together local public services, charities, support groups, national campaigns, women's enterprise and inspiring role models to celebrate, inspire, reach out, raise awareness and make a difference.

Stallholders say that they benefit from being part of the IWD festival by raising awareness, networking with other organisations, engaging the public, fundraising, recruiting staff or volunteers or growing membership and being associated with a positive event, showing a commitment to gender equality.”

The Movement (15) film screening with Q+A - The Quad, Derby

We have the worst refugee crisis since World War II, with people fleeing atrocity from Africa, the Middle East and other troubled regions. This film focuses on the volunteers, the grassroots activists as they do what they can to aid refugees. Firefighters, footballers and nurses out saving people as part of their everyday lives. 

"...crafted with a fierce commitment to truth-telling, entirely righteous fury at the appalling abuse of refugees and an ambition to help somehow." - The Guardian 

This screening will feature a panel Q&A led by the Bread & Roses group that includes director Sharon Walia and Brendan Woodhouse, a firefighter from Derby and one of the subjects of the film.

Filling a container for Greece

Please come down to our old portacabins on Monday afternoon and help to load a container full of aid destined for a refugee camp in Chios Greece.

The situation there is desperate,

"The islands of Lesbos and Chios are still bearing the brunt of the ongoing crisis which shows few signs of abating.The already painfully overcrowded and notorious camp at Moria on Lesbos is now bursting, with over 7,000 people staying in a space designed for less than half that number."

If you can spare even an hour to help out, we would be really grateful. Volunteers from other teams in Leicestershire and Lincolnshire will be there to help too but as we know, this is a BIG job.

Autumn Car Boot Sale for DRS - Tansley

Please come and join us to sell donated items to raise funds for DRS projects!

Yes, it's an early start and yes, it will probably rain....but we always have a fab day and have made up to £500 on past occasions to spend on essentials such as fuel to get us over to Calais/Paris etc. Or on urgent items needed such as in Dunkirk Women's camp which recently burned down.

You don't have to come for the whole morning. Just pop and see us for an hour or two. SOME volunteers need more beauty sleep than others (you know who you are!)

Hope to see you there!
