In mid-November, a group of St Mark’s members got together after the Sunday service to discuss how we could help refugees. Liz Marshall had information about several avenues of approach and, at that point, we identified a particular need for warm clothes in time for the Syrian winter. Time was short and when, in early December, I took our contribution to the Direct Aid depot in Granton, I could see that the van was about half-full of boxes and that packing and loading was going on apace. The van was scheduled to leave within a few days.
Thanks to everyone who contributed in the short time span and, after this most encouraging initial action - the question is – what do we do next?
