Winter in the Camps

As our temperatures drop and we feel the cold, thousands are still trapped in camps across Europe contending with the bitter cold. 

This maybe  an opportunity to extend the Christmas spirit to  those in need by supporting one of the following events/initiatives/Charities. 

Help support Lisa Campbell from Do Your Part. Raise money to help her refugee camp in Onifyta this winter.

For those wishing to donate to those still trapped in Syria please see Hand In Hand For Syria.

And for those who missed out on the Cook for Syria initiative, why not gift someone a Cook for Syria Recipe cookbook which is available for pre-order now. 

A nationwide initiative, curated by Clerkenwell Boy and SUITCASE Magazine, over November focused on Syrian cuisine being delivered by UK’s top chefs to raise money in aid of UNICEF’s Syria Relief fund via Next Generation London (UNICEF’s youth branch). They hope the initiative will continue globally.
