Unseen’s specialised care is the first step in the fight against slavery. Through supporting survivors, their provision gives them a safe place to recover from trauma and rebuild their lives. We have supported Unseen for a number of years including Christmas Presents for those in the Safe Houses.
Two teams from the Programme Action committee (Yvonne, Pauline C, Ivete, Liz N, Sue P, Marion and Sally) led by Yvonne wrapped items in Christmas paper and placed them into shoe boxes to be given to people spending Christmas in an UNSEEN Safe House. The first of two groups of Soroptimists spent a few very convivial hours wrapping up individual Christmas presents and the boxes to put them in. 8 boxes full of presents for the women were completed and the next day the second group met and completed 5 boxes for the men. They had such fun together making the presents look pretty and inviting!
The presents were donations from SI Bristol members and fulfilled a pre-determined list of items from Unseen. Thank you all for your support.
