Refugee donates to charities working with Asylum Seekers and Refugees
The Welsh Refugee Council would like to thank Jane Hibbert, a French refugee for donating £75.00 to 10 charities in Wales as a memorial for those who lost their live aboard the SS Arandora Star after leaving Liverpool docks/habour late June 1940. The ship was sank from torpedo fire on the 2 July 1940, 75 miles off the North West coast of Donegal, Ireland. 800 lost their lives in this incident, most were non-combatant.
Jane was one of the fortunate refugees from France who disembarked from the ship in Liverpool before it sailed on to its’ next journey. Jane see parallels with the migrants who are rescued at sea in Europe.
Jane has lived most of life in the UK and chose Wales as her home. The Welsh Refugee Council is extremely grateful for the support and interest towards the issues of migration.
