Festive Week 2010 – another great success!

Santa and Salima

WERS thanks everyone who donated chocolates, toiletries and small gifts to be distributed to clients and their families during Festive Week. Thanks too to the five Santas who gave out the hundreds of bags of presents. The photo shows the Monday Santa, Guy, with one of our clothing store volunteers Salima. Glad you can breathe with that monster beard, Guy – keep smiling!

New Year Honour for WERS Director

Congratulations to Lindsay Cross who has been appointed MBE in the New Year Honours List for services to the West End Refugee Service in Newcastle

Lindsay says:

‘This honour came as a total shock – but a very nice one!
I am delighted that the work of an asylum seeker and refugee support organisation has been recognised in this way. It is a fitting tribute to all the staff, volunteers and supporters who over the last 11 years have helped thousands of clients.’
