My story

[p]I’m delighted to participate in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge with Restore. One of the aims of the Captain Tom Foundation is to combat loneliness which Restore does through our befriending work with people who have fled persecution in their home countries and need sanctuary here.[/p][p]The Restore staff team -[b] Catherine, Andy, Jeremy and me (Josh) [/b]- will be Singing for Sanctuary for 100 minutes on Friday 30 April (outside and socially distanced!) to raise funds to help fulfil Restore's vision for a society into which all refugees and asylum seekers are welcomed, valued and integrated.[/p][p]We are planning to live stream the event on YouTube from 2pm - more details to follow soon. [b]If you sponsor us, you can request a song for us to sing! [/b](Please put your suggestion in the comments when you donate)[/p][p]Your support will enable Restore to help more refugees and asylum seekers in Birmingham. One refugee recently wrote, [b]"I thought that protection can be provided on legal and physical grounds. However, I realised that Restore provide another valuable form of protection which is the spiritual one. Restore embraced me and made my isolated lonely life, viable and sociable. I felt that Restore saved me from trauma and found me a befriender who was more than a friend but an angel and brother."[/b][/p][p]Another said, [b]“I have found my befriender very supportive, informative, caring and considerate. Restore has enabled me to confidently integrate myself into the community. I found Restore like a shelter for people, like me, who are lost in this world.” [/b][/p]
