Serve Food For Syria

The Rural Refugee Network would like to thank everyone who supported, promoted and organised something for our Serve Food for Syria campaign in October. We managed to raise £2,648.50 (this does not include gift aid)! We look forward to making it an even bigger success next year. 

Rural Refugee Network gratefully receiving a cheque for £1000 donated by Bedar of the Madhuban restaurant in Liss after a very successful sponsored  Serve Food for Syria dinner this month. 

We are asking you to help Syrian refugees this October by having something to eat with friends, family, colleagues, kids, anyone you like. You can do anything from organising a bake sale to hosting a supper at home for   friends.

Syria has an ancient and vibrant food culture and sharing food is an essential part of the culture of Syrian society, so what better way to raise money for the families who have come here than to celebrate with good food and good company.
Money raised will be used to support RRN Syrian refugee families here in Hampshire and Syrian refugee children in the camps in Lebanon through Children on the Edge.
