Anmesty group is grateful

SIR, — Amnesty International Mid-Down group would like to thank the public for their generous donations during our annual street collection, held this year in Newcastle on June 30.

A total of £94.85 was raised which will be used in Amnesty International’s ‘I Welcome Refugees’ campaign.

As part of this campaign we are presenting Ice and Fire’s Asylum Monologues on Saturday, July 21, at 7pm during the Soma Festival in Castlewellan.

This is a powerful reading of actual testimony from asylum seekers and their difficulties and hopes. 

Amnesty International relies entirely on voluntary subions and donations to fund its human rights work and we greatly appreciate the contributions of all those who assist us in this task.

Yours etc,
