Students and staff at The Castle School in Taunton have donated 50+ boxes to the charity CHARIS which helps local refugees in Taunton and the surrounding area.
These refugees have fled war torn countries looking for peace and safety, often with nothing but the clothes on their backs. CHARIS helps them assimilate to British society through English classes, helping them find work.
Lisa Westlake from CHARIS has told Tone News:
I was totally overwhelmed by the school’s incredible generosity and kindness to our Taunton refugee families! I am so glad I didn’t come in my little car; I would have been making several journeys.
My goodness – THANK YOU! On behalf of all our families.
