The event is free and we ask for donations for Refugee charities at the event because fundraising for Cambridge charities is an important part of our Refugee Week activities. We are raising awareness and fundraising for CamCRAG, Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group, and you can donate in cash buckets at the event or donate online in several ways suggested on CamCRAG’s website:  https://camcrag.org.uk/donating/ 

We are also raising awareness and collecting donations for the Refugee Hardship Fund which is administered by Cambridge Ethnic Community Forum Refugee Services, supporting not only refugees but also destitute asylum seekers.  Please go to the fundraising information page which offers several ways to make a donation: https://cecf.co.uk/donate/

We suggest that children under 9 years of age only attend at the discretion of adults in their family to follow-up and guide their children to discuss issues they will hear and learn about during this civic event. We very much look forward to seeing you there.
