COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP OF A SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILY Meeting on 4th July. This event is led by CroesoMenai, a new project for North Wales to help sponsor a Syrian family to settle in the local area. It is a significant undertaking for a community to take on and, in order for it to succeed, we need to build a dedicated team of volunteers, who will not only be able to raise the funds required (minimum of £9,000 per family) but also be able to source local private housing, negotiate with the council, equip the house, and support and mentor the family once arrived. We need your help! Individuals and groups from as many diverse sectors as possible – community groups, local charities, schools, college, university, churches, chapels, mosque, meeting house, other faith groups, businesses, leisure centres etc. Syrian refreshments from 6.30pm, meeting starts 7 – 8.30pm, Capel Emaus, Love Lane, Bangor.
