Science Graduate School cake sale raises £250 for refugees

Last week the Science Graduate School held a small cake sale in order to raise money and awareness for Refugee Action.

The charity helps refugees who have lost everything to build a new life in the UK and create a safe new home for themselves and their families.

Refugee Action was founded in 1981 and their first role was to help refugees from Vietnam make the UK their home. Now they are helping Syrians to be resettled into Britain.

Postgraduate Administrator Rachael Ward, who helped organise the cake sale, said: "The Science Graduate School's cake sale was a huge success and we managed to sell all of the cakes that were kindly baked and donated. In total we raised £250 (with Gift Aid).

"Refugee Action is a fantastic charity to be a part of and helping those in need of a new start to life means everything as without help like this these refugee men, women and children would be lost; because of Refugee Action and the help that we can provide with fundraising events these families can be helped along to a life of peace.

"Many thanks to all those that came to the cake sale and took part by baking or buying."

If people couldn't make it to the cake sale but would like to make a donation or organise their own fundraising event, as an individual or a team, at work or at home, there's lots of information on their website.
