Overseas visits

From 3 to 8 April 2017 I travelled to Sicily, Lampedusa and Palermo in Italy. The purpose of the visit was a fact-finding trip to meet refugees and those supporting them, to hear their stories, see the crisis first hand and witness the work being done to alleviate it. The total cost of the visit, including flights, transfers and accommodation, was £1245.62, and was met by Churches Together Britain and Ireland (CTBI) (an organisation that works bringing together different denominations in their work of 39 Eccleston Square, London SW1V 1BX).
