Event description

Description

Alf Dubs is a British politician and former Member of Parliament for Battersea. He came to England in 1939 when he was just six years old as one of over 600 children that was bought out of Czechoslovakia by the Kindertransport that was organised by Sir Nicholas Winton.

As someone who has experienced life as a Refugee, perhaps it should not come as any surprise that he sponsored a Bill through Parliament to bring a new generation of unaccompanied child refugees to the UK through safe and legal routes. Today, he is the strongest and most visible supporter of the Safe Passage Charity that has been able to bring over 1700 young people to the UK who are qualified to come here because they have close relatives that are resident in the UK.

While there is no entrance fee, this is a Fundraising Event to support the excellent work that is being done by the Safe Passage organisation and therefore all donations will be welcomed. For more information about their work, please go to www.safepassage.org.uk

Let us show these children that they are not forgotten.

Thank you for your support.
