Refugee Week 2008 is Sun 15–Sat 21 June. The theme for this year is ‘A Place To Call Home’. The Newcastle branch of the Community Refugee Support Group is organising a celebration/BBQ day for all of Newcastle’s refugee communities.

About 10 volunteers will be required to assist with organising, supervision, BBQ duties, joining in the fun, etc. This event is a great opportunity for volunteers to show their support and spend a fun day with refugee families. If you wish to pre-arrange a volunteer activity, then please contact CRS Group Co-ordinator Ron Davis on 49 517878. Otherwise, just turn up on the day and you’ll be given a task to help with.

Thank you.
