GENEROUS residents from Bromsgrove and Redditch have contributed more than 300 bags of donations for refugees in camps across Europe and Syria.

Worcestershire charity People in Motion will be transporting the items to camps in France, Greece and Syria.

The collection was organised by the Bromsgrove Welcomes Refugees Committee and includes clothes, sleeping bags, toiletries and shoes for men, women and children who are seeking asylum and refuge from the war-torn countries they have fled.

All of the bags are at the People in Motion headquarters where they will be sorted before being shipped over.

Vice chairman of BWR Naeem Arif who led the project said he was delighted and overwhelmed by the public response.

He said a big thank you to all residents who had donated and to the dedicated volunteers who helped him to sort on the day of collection.

 

The next donation collection day will be between 2pm and 5pm on May 14 at Bromsgrove’s St John’s Church.
