Urgent appeal – Afghan refugees

The UK has committed to take in up to 20,000 Afghan refugees over the next few years. including 5,000 this year.

A number of refugee children and young adults will soon be settled in Chesterfield, and various groups are making collections to ensure they have everything they need. We’ll keep you updated on ways to help on the Volunteer Centre site.

Here’s the latest

A read to remember

‘THROUGH THEIR EYES’ is the new book from David Radford, in support of The Volunteer Centre.

Based on a series of fascinating interviews, this extraordinary book relates to real stories of conflict from the people who lived through it.

In vivid detail, and genuinely moving accounts, this unique publication draws the reader into a hugely significant period of history; capturing surprising and emotional stories first hand, before they disappear forever.

These are more than just memories, they are the events that marked the world and an entire generation.
