Scotland Supporting Refugees are a community of volunteers founded by Suzanne McLaughlin of Yesbar, Julie Hepburn, Sarah-Jane Walls, Alison Thewliss MP & friends.

They have a number of aims. First of all, they want to raise awareness of this humanitarian disaster and of opportunities to help. They also want to campaign for a more coordinated approach from NGOs and others. But crucially, they want to provide help – fast! The main focus will be raising funds, both to support our own efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to refugees, but also the valuable work of other organisations – large or small.

You’ll be able to pay by cheque, bank transfer or PayPal. Don’t send any money just now, I’ll contact you with payment details when the books come back from the printer – which should be the end of next week.

    So gutted I can’t be there Paul, but I hope you have a ball.

    Got the email off to you early though, so I’ll be looking forward to having a walk down memory lane with those yaps. I may need a hanky or two and possibly a bottle Sauvignon, oh and the odd bag of choccy raisins may be involved.
