**Winter 40 ft container of aid APPEAL**
**REMEMBER when you helped raise funds to send a 40ft container of aid.
**REMEMBER when you helped raise funds to buy food supplies, shoes, coats, tents and sleeping bags.
**REMEMBER when you collected winter aid in Newcastle, Northumberland, Middlesborough, Leicester, Loughborough, Derby and London.
It was a mammoth and difficult task but we did it. We managed to load our 40ft container of aid to go to Chios Island, Greece to help those in the refugee camps.
Thank you to:
Emma Horspool and her team from Market Harborough Helping Refugees
Rebecca & Adam Spilane and their entire team of LE Solidarity.
Richard Humphry and everyone at HIS Church
A Special Thanks to Amy Sunshine, Steve Cook and the entire team of Derby Refugee Solidarity. Not only did they provide us with their premises for loading of the container at short notice, helped fill the container with aid until it was completely full, they came together with a big team of friendly people to help us load.
I am so overwhelmed by everyone who helped prepare this container of aid and I am so thankful and grateful to see the immense love and care we have not only for those in camps but each other, volunteers, some of who we have never met before.
Thank you to all the supporters, helpers and donors of Refugee Biriyani & Bananas.
It was long day and some of us spent many many hours driving, transporting and loading.
To be able to send a 40ft container of food and winter aid in collaboration with so many groups and individuals is a miracle in itself just like the beautiful rainbow which was in the sky just as we finished.
TO ALL OUR BROTHERS & SISTERS IN CAMP
LOTS OF LOVE FROM ENGLAND.
