Lest We Forget - First World War: Refugees Then and Now


 
Did you know that thousands of Belgian refugees came to Scotland during the First World War from 1914 - 1918?
100 years on, a group of refugees and local Scots share what they’ve discovered about this hidden heritage and draw parallels with their own experiences of re-building their lives in Scotland today.  - Scottish Refugee Council
 
 
 
 
 

A Donation Day for refugee camps will be held in Portree later this month.
The event is organised by SleatFugees, who are looking for donations of winter clothing for adults and children, shoes, school stationary and craft items, blankets, new underwear, baby items, Moses baskets and prams, nappies, as well as tents and camping equipment.
They have asked that all items are clean and of the same quality found in a UK charity shop.
They told Skye Times Online: "We are also looking for help on the day - an hour or two or all day if you can.
"All aid will be packed, uplifted and will head to Refugee camps most likely in Greece."
Tea, coffee and baking will be available on the day.
The event will take place on Saturday 30 November at Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Phort Rìgh between 11am - 3pm. - The Skye Times
