Refugee Crisis

  • Deeply moved by this photograph - and so many others - we volunteerd to support or help to anyone in Northumberland wanting to organise an event to support the refugees.

We were approached by a community group wishing to raise money througha soup lunch. Happening up North was able to organise corporate sponsorship for the group from Greggs the Bakers who donated 800 bread rolls. We went to on to help them build and train a volunteer events team, a press campaign and a social media platform.

The group went on to raise £3,000 for The Red Cross in a single week.
