Jeremy said: “Brighton Table Tennis Club is a club of hope, a place of sanctuary, a place of joy, and a place of opportunity. When you’re coming here, you’re identifying by playing table tennis. Nothing else. Just playing table tennis. It puts you all together, feeling strong, and it gives young people confidence and hope.”
The City of Sanctuary vision is that every place is one of welcome and hope for asylum seekers and refugees.
