Would you get involved in a physical challenge if you knew it would help some of the most vulnerable people in the UK?
Here at the British Red Cross we believe that every refugee matters. That’s why we are asking everyone across Scotland to get active and take part in Miles for Refugees, our brand new fundraising challenge that will help refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK to get the support they need to rebuild their lives.
In the face of conflict or persecution, refugees are often forced to travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles to reach a place of safety. Miles for Refugees allows you to pick the distance of one of these journeys and cover the miles during the month of September, either individually, or part of a team.
Your miles can change the lives of refugees this September. Learn more and sign up at miles.redcross.org.uk
