Aid Box Community Raffle Ticket

Aid Box Community Raffle Ticket

  • £5.00

As part of our Aid Box Community fundraiser evening with Justin Adams & Mohamed Errebbaa with support from Knud Stüwe & Ali Elmubarak, we are running an online raffle with some great prizes.

ABC formed from outreach work in the camps of Northern France in 2015 and has developed a supportive framework in Bristol that welcomes asylum seekers and refugees to the city; the creation of their central Hub has allowed them to reach well over 500 vulnerable displaced people from 42 different countries. Their founding principle is to uphold the basic rights of refugees and asylum seekers by providing practical aid, support and direction and, by doing so, making their daily lives a little easier.

Within the Hub, ABC is able to offer a social meeting place and issue essential provisions as most of their members live on £6 per day whilst many are currently housed in temporary accommodation in hotels, living on £8 per week working out at £1.14 per day; many members are suffering with mental health issues and isolation. As well as the Hub, they run successful outreach groups building community and support with a host of activities, workshops & friendship. Benny volunteers at the ABC men's group which provides a vital outlet for people who are really struggling on arrival in Bristol, offering a community of activity, purpose & friendship.

Much of this is run on uncertain funding and thin resources so your donations will go a long way.

 Please note: As this is a digital raffle, the ticket number is the order number, so if you buy multiple they'll all be going in the hat.

- 2 x weekend WOMAD tickets
