    Story

    Enable emergency services to continue providing support and to deliver aid to vulnerable refugee communities via CRSB.

    Bill and I will be cycling from Bristol to Istanbul, as of July 5th. It's been a long time in the making and it will a lot further yet. It's going to be grueling mission at times, and has taken a lot of planning and preparation both practically and mentally. We've chosen good causes close to our hearts to fund raise for, and it would be great if we could have your support in doing this.

    Having worked with CRSB for nearly 10 months, I have seen first hand the atrocities that people have been faced with. The refugee community is large and diverse in it's nature and is still very much in need of crucial support and aid. Every day people that have forced to rip themselves away from there home, their communities, their lives, due to war and extremist regime.

    Although the camps in France have seemingly been dismantled or destroyed one way or another, there is still very much a need among people, children, who are struggling to survive, having no basic needs met and unable to live without fear of illness or aggression.

    CRSB is a grass-roots organisation and for this reason we publicly post all our funding in-goings and out. It also means that we can provide monetary aid wherever it is most needed at a given time. That could be anything from food supplies, to building materials, to medical equipment and so on. We have previously sent aid and volunteers to Calais & Dunkirk, donations have also gone to Greece and finance to initiatives such as phone credit schemes, support centers and maintenaince schemes.
