Harwell and Chilton Churches L   
Dear Church member

Volunteers needed to run a creche for local Afghan Refugees 
refugeeYou may recall from a previous email that our churches are working with other local churches to support a number of Afghan refugees who have arrived in our area. There are now at least 100 Afghan refugees staying at a local hotel and no immediate plans for the rehousing of these families in permanent accommodation.

An initial planning meeting is taking place tomorrow afternoon, 3rd November, to discuss the setting up of a creche at the hotel and a call has gone out for volunteers to help run it.

With apologies for the short notice, if you are able to offer some time as a creche volunteer would you please make initial contact so that the planning meeting can have an idea of numbers available? Volunteers would need to be DBS checked before taking up this role and Oxfordshire County Council will provide safeguarding training.
If you can help please would you email joanna.schuder@gmail.com to indicate your potential availability.

We will be in touch again later about other ways that we can be involved in supporting these families, and demonstrating to them the love of Christ.

Yours, in Christ,
