Cornwall Stands Tall and Says #refugeeswelcome

Proud to be a small part of this, Cornwall defies the small minded behaviour of our government, and in one week, with one woman and a group of big hearted people, we have a Proud and Peaceful #refugeeswelcome #solidaritywithrefugees #notinmyname gathering in Truro.
Speakers, donations and collections, families sharing and giving.

Cornwall warms my heart everyday.
We did not turn entirely blue in May.
Our hearts still beat with the rest of humanity.

See you there, I shall be mostly in the first aid tent….
