Meltham Refugee Crisis Appeal
We are hosting a 'thank you' event at the Waggon & Horses, Meltham on February 19th from 7:30pm. All welcome!
The Managing Director and Trustees from Syria Relief will attend and provide an update with what happened with the 1,000's of boxes of aid donated through the Carlile Institute.
We are now looking for financial contributions that will help the items to be transported to those in need. Financial donations can be made through The Crossroads project using the account details below, or by dropping it off at the Crossroads shop in Meltham, or at Meltham Post Office at the Carlile Institute.

Thank you Post Office Ltd!
The donations that have been made are going to be sent to Syria Relief, a Manchester based charity that runs regular convoys out to areas in need. We have had a fantastic offer from Post Office Ltd which will see them donate a 20t truck to transport almost 1,000 boxes of items on Thursday 17th September.
We are looking for volunteers to help load the truck from 9am on Thursday morning. Come along to the Carlile Institute if you are able to assist.
