The Refugee Tales May 10
The journey of our gift is not over. Home Office policy is that gifts cannot be handed in. Even the post entrance cannot accept our beautiful tales. We are not permitted to photograph the post entrance from the pavement. We shall post our package. The tales will reach out.

On camera. At Marsham Street. Suddenly this feels very serious. All the tales in our hands. Beautiful and tragic tales of people who are our walking community. This is the most special gift we have ever had the privilege to offer.

Victims of the Government’s ‘hostile environment’ need expert help to ensure their applications meet the Home Office’s ludicrously tough evidence requirements. We need to re-instate in such cases. Please sign and tweet this petition:
