DavDavid Wooldridgeid Wooldridge, who was our treasurer for over 10 years,  passed away at the weekend after a short illness. We will remember him very very fondly for his kindness and his sense of humour which will be very sadly missed. By keeping our finances on track he made a huge difference to our ability to support our refugee and asylum seeker clients.  I'm not sure how he found the time, but he also volunteered for several other organisations in Kingston too.  The world is a much poorer place without him. 

There will be a memorial service for David on October 23rd from 12pm at Coombe Wood Golf Club. Please contact admin@refugeeactionkingston.org.uk if you would like further details.

Last Friday we held our annual meeting, where we celebrated the successes achieved in the last financial year, announced our future plans and shared lunch together as a community of refugees, asylumseekers, volunteers, staff, trustees and supporters. We were especially proud to welcome @RBKMayor councillor Thay Thayalan and his wife to the event.

These wonderful photos of the event are courtesy of our volunteer photographer Terry Crisp.
