While the smiles in the pictures are blocked out for privacy reasons, we should all be smiling knowing that our building is being used to provide a point of social connection and mental wellness for refugees.  It is an honour to host those looking for a safe home, as many of our ancestors were not too long ago, and give them a moment of respite and joy. Care4Calais gathers 30 adults and many children from three of the nearby hotels for games and activities.
