We say thank you on Volunteers Day

Thousands of ordinary people, standing in solidarity with people seeking sanctuary. ⁣⁣⁣
This International Volunteer Day, we’re celebrating YOU – the people who step up every day to create a better, fairer, kinder world. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
Whether it’s arranging distributions of vital supplies, promoting welcome and inclusion, raising awareness in schools or campaigning for political change – the City of Sanctuary movement does everything possible to stand in solidarity with people forced to flee their homes. ⁣⁣
From the Yorkshire Dales to the Valleys of Wales, from schools to town halls (to name just a few): you are all heroes.
