Royal Blind School pupils and young adults from Forward Vision collect clothing and raise funds to support refugee crisis in Europe

Pupils from the Royal Blind School and young adults from Forward Vision have responded to the present refugee crisis in Europe by collecting funds as well as donating toys, bedding and clothing.

By July 2015, over 438,000 refugees had claimed asylum in Europe compared to 571,000 for the whole of 2014. The conflict in Syria is the biggest driver of migration as well as continued violence in Afghanistan and poverty in Kosovo.
