I have volunteered regularly for CamCRAG over the past couple of years and have seen how the conditions endured by migrants in France are similar to those faced by the homeless in Cambridge. Mostly these are ordinary people escaping violence or exploitation - nobody makes themselves homeless voluntarily. Put simply, I believe that nobody should be without a roof over their head, struggling with poor mental and physical health as a result. The complexity of an issue should not be used as an excuse to do nothing. I am proud to do my bit for CamCRAG’s biggest fundraiser of the year raising funds for our work with refugees andCambridge Churches Homeless Project for their work with local women experiencing homelessness. Please do your part by sponsoring me.
