Walk a mile for Child Refugees

23rd June 2018


Parker's Piece, Cambridge CB1 1JE

Join SOS Children’s Villages UK to Walk a Mile and show solidarity with millions of child refugees worldwide who are fleeing violence, warfare and disaster.

walk a mile poster Show child refugees they are welcome here, acknowledge their courage and stand up for their right to be reunited with their families.

The mile-long march through Cambridge is a great way for you to show your support for child refugees, and consider what it is like to be a young person fleeing for your life, leaving behind everything that is familiar, comforting and safe, and traveling thousands of miles to find a place to call home.

Meet at Parker’s Piece at 10.30am, where the march will begin with a short talk on the global refugee crisis by SOS Children’s Villages UK CEO Alison Wallace. Supporters will then march to Emmanuel United Reform Church, where there will be a talk by Cambridge MP Daniel Ziechner as part of the Great Get Together in memory of Jo Cox.
