Canvas for A Cause: Exploring Home Through Art – A Creative Success!

On Saturday, May 11th, DCRS Offices at 7 Whimple Street came alive with creativity and community spirit as we hosted "Canvas for A Cause: Exploring Home Through Art" in collaboration with Azza's Gallery. This fun drawing and painting event celebrated 'Our Home' by bringing people together to share memories, learn about different cultures, and express themselves through art.

Thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of our participants, we raised £67.50 to support Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support’s destitution programme. We are grateful to everyone who joined us and contributed to this meaningful cause. Stay tuned for more events where we can create, celebrate, and support our community!

Conquering the Plymouth 1/2 Marathon for DCRS

Last Sunday, we cheered on Heather as she conquered the Plymouth 1/2 Marathon, raising £338 for DCRS. She finished in 2 hours and 22 minutes with a big smile on her face! Heather's dedication to DCRS's mission of advocacy and community support is inspiring.

Reflecting on her experience, Heather shared this;

"On Sunday 28th April I ran the Plymouth half marathon. I picked to raise funds for DCRS after seeing first hand in their creative club sessions the comfort, education and support they provide for refugees. I volunteer with Fotonow, and helped them in creative club by taking photos of the creative works made by service users. I am really pleased to be able to raise £338 for DCRS, their mission of advocacy and community is a message I really believe in. I finished the half marathon in 2 hours and 22 minutes with a big smile on my face!"

Let's celebrate her achievement and the difference she's made!

In 2022, Plymouth College raised over £5,800 for DCRS in a charity cycle event.

The goal was to cycle the distance from Tunisia to Plymouth in 24 hours, chosen as it is a common departure point from the African continent for those seeking asylum in Europe.

A massive thank you to all of the students that took part in the cycle and to those who donated to their amazing effort.
