Good for you. You will enjoy the experience as we have done in Peckham, where we welcomed a Syrian refugee family of 8 back in March. Glad to support a group in the town where I went to journalism college

What a great initiative. I hope the project will be successful and Cornwall will be able to welcome a family to their new home soon.

A wonderful cause. Welcoming a family the way we would wish to be welcomed if we were refugees feels really special.
