Broadcast on Thursday 28th January 2016. Our studio guest was Mark Lukas who has been volunteering and fundraising for Tunbridge Wells based charity RefugEASE. Listen to the show to hear his story about being moved into action after seeing a post on Facebook from the charity asking for help to deliver supplies to refugees in Greece. He travelled over there for the first time in November, his activities ranging from distributing emergency food, clothing, medical supplies and shelters, to cleaning, shuttling volunteers and refugees alike from various camps and stations on the island.
Mark is now organising for a group from the charity to return in March. He’s never organised something like this before and realises there is much to do. We really do wish him every success in taking on these new challenges.
