At the end of September two families from Hitchin spent an afternoon in the picturesque village of Preston at the kind invitation of deputy lord-lieutenants, Joyce Plotnikoff and Richard Woolfson.
After hearing a presentation about our charity, Joyce and Richard decided to extend their own welcome to two refugee families who live locally to them.
The families’ visit included a walk through the village to the school, where a game of football had been arranged with some local residents. Afterwards, the families were invited for tea and cakes at the home of the deputy lord-lieutenants.
Everyone really appreciated the afternoon out, as well as the kindness of our new supporters.
