A big thank you to Green Brigade for choosing SAFR as one of the beneficiaries for their #footballagainstfacism fundraiser and donating an amazing £7578. This gives us a great start for all our plans in the new year. It doesn’t mean we will be having a sit down though, as plans are already being made for our next fundraiser – SAFR’s big quiz night is back! Where: Rum Shack When: Sunday 26th January 2020 More details coming soon …
Fiona is the most recent victim of the SAFR family arm twisting prowess. Having been involved in SAFR from the start and our collections coordinator extraordinaire for the last 2 years, Fiona now joins our Board of Trustees and we couldn’t be more delighted.
It is with very mixed feelings that we close our doors at SAFR Space in Govan for the last time today. We have welcomed many guests through our doors over the last 2 years and provided practical help and support to New Scots in Glasgow. It has been a pleasure to meet people from all over the world and offer a friendly chat and a cup of tea. However, we are moving forward with other projects that require premises that are bigger and more versatile than our wee hub, and so we are on the move to bigger and better things. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our amazing volunteers who have given of their time to run the hub. Thank you - we couldn’t have done it without you.
We have some amazing supporters who raise funds for us. Almost £1000 from 9 Facebook fundraisers this year and in the last couple of months music events by Holy Smokes Records, The Primevals & a swish party by Jennifer Gibson raised a grand total of £750. A big thank you to each and every one of you!
Last month, our 40 foot container filled with winter clothing and supplies arrived in Syria. Hand in Hand for Aid and Development set up a special shop in Kafer Takhareem in Idlib for distribution. Thank you to everyone who brought items, donated funds, organised collections, helped at events and spread the word. Keep an eye out for our plans for the new year. #LovefromSAFR @hihfaduk
