Refugee Tales - Refugee Week Event

24 Jun 2017 - 2.00PM

Refugee Tales are working with Woking People of Faith, a local interfaith organisation, to host this special event as part of Refugee Week.

The event will comprise of an introduction to the Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group and the important work that they do; a talk by a local Woking Refugee Tales walker who will share their own experience of the walk last year, and will also include readings of stories by David Herd and Josh Cohen.

This is a great way to find out about the Refugee Tales project ahead of the full walk in the following month.
