Refugee Family 1

We have been celebrating the good news that Sameer, Raja and Mahmoud have all received “leave to remain” in the UK but now that Advent has arrived we have a different refugee family to think about.


The Holy family made there way home to Leeds after a nice restful stay at Witton Castle. The A1 was very busy but they dealt with the heavy lorries well, dodging them and keeping the sheep close in to the fences for safety. Phew what a journey!

Throughout Advent this knitted Holy Family and “friends” will be travelling around the Leeds area seeking refuge in the homes of anyone who cares to look after them for a night or two. This gives us a chance to think about what it means to be a refugee and also to reflect on those special refugees of 2000 years ago.
