OUR EVENTS 

'2,000 Miles Team Cycling Fundraiser'


Starting 12th June 2021, our team members and friends of Bermondsey Welcomes Refugees took up the challenge to cycle approx. 2,000 miles, to highlight the average miles travelled by a refugee family to the UK.

It took them approx 9 weeks to complete this challenge, cycling in their spare time and in all weathers.  They ended up covering an impressive 2,066miles.  

You can still support this amazing fundraising by donating through  our Just Giving page.  All money raised goes towards our work.



'Rod Stewart Tribute'


On Thursday 4th March 2021 we held an online fundraising event featuring the hits of Rod Stewart with tribute act Paul Metcalfe.


Watch 'The Astonishing world of space exploration' with Tira Shubart who talked about what we have learned from exploring space, looking back at the rivalry of the US-Soviet space race and a few highlights to look forward to in the coming months.

This fundraising event took place on 16th October but you can still donate.
