Poem-A-Thon for Refugees

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our team page for our Poem-A-Thon for Refugees.

Although the event has already taken place (and was a great success) our poets individual pages - listed below - will be open for donations until 22nd December!

What is a Poem-A-Thon?

This exciting event will be a 'relay' of poets reading poems throughout the day.

Each poet involved has signed up for a ten minute slot during which they read their own choice of poems. These will either be their own work or favourite poems they wish to share. The poems aren't necessarily themed, but poems themed around the subject of refugees are welcome.

You can find the link to each individual poet's fundraising site below where you can sponsor their involvement in the event.

All funds raised by the Poem-A-Thon for Refugees, through sponsorship and through donations at the event, will go to Médicins sans Frontieres to support their crucial work with refugees in the Mediterranean with refugees.
