So we kicked off the first Gold of Syria in the new decade on 4th February. Collaborating with Cosy, a social enterprise coffeeshop which is run by volunteers, we are always aiming to improve the whole lunch experience and serve the lovely customers who turn up to support the cause as best as we could. Refill & Refuel was also on site to promote their plastic free products and to support us.
The project has since supported 4 Syrian refugees with their driving lessons, purchase of equipment for hair dressing business and food business. These stories are very encouraging and we hope to impact even more lives with the funds raised from lunch boxes.
We have raised another £170 net, from Tuesday's lunch in addition to the sales from the hot drinks which is used to support the work of The Lighthouse, so thank you all for being there.
