WRBF was conceived and established through the Broughty Ferry Churches Group and continues to act under the BFCG “umbrella” with its funds held within the BFCG accounts. It seeks to support work with refugees in the Dundee area, raise general awareness, and liaise, as appropriate, with national bodies.
The BFCG meeting this week received a report from WRBF as follows:
- A sale of paintings has raised £580 to support ongoing work.
- 2 car-loads of warm clothes was collected for the large group of refugees arrived in Dundee.
- Connection Café at The Steeple remains busy but the Panmurefield Ukrainian Café (on Baptist premises) will cease after Christmas.
- The customary collection of ‘gift shoe boxes’ has been widely undertaken through churches and the local community.
