Earlier in the year, the YCW National Training and Development Worker, Marc Besford, went to visit the Sandbach IMPACT Group to discuss their continuing action to support Refugees.
The Group have been raising money since last year to aid efforts for a Parish refugee sponsorship scheme, initiated by the IMPACT Group.
Their work has now been praised by the local Council who are also assisting the Parish in their efforts to host a refugee family in Sandbach.
If the application is successful, the Parish will provide housing for the family, access to medical and social services, English language tuition and support until they become self-sufficient.
Marc Besford congratulated the Group saying: "The young member of Sandbach YCW IMPACT Group are a true inspiration. To have seen and judged the terrible plight of refugees around the world and taken such bold action, they embody the power of young people coming together to make a difference. Well done to them, their Chaplain, Fr Michael Morton and their Parish."
