Since 2017 the Wolverhampton Society of Friends (Quakers) has joined with the Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary charity and the Birch Thompson Memorial Fund to provide holidays for Sanctuary Seekers.

Those invited are known to the Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary through its regular weekly Drop-in Centre meeting.

Three groups are taken by volunteers to stay at Gelliwig, the Charity Residential Centre in Porthmadog owned by the Birch Thompson Memorial Fund. These five day holidays provide a most welcome short respite from the daily life in temporary accommodation in the Wolverhampton area.

Seventy people, including children benefit from these holidays and the cost in the region of £7,000 has to be raised every year.

In 2023 this fundraising page raised over £1`000 and our target this year is £1,000 from this wider appeal to the general public.

We do hope that you will help us to continue this venture and bring a short break for those who have escaped from persecution, violence and similar threats in their lives.
