Half Marathon Fundraiser for our Work with Refugees

Dan, Karen, Liz, Mirna, Sian, Laura, Owen and Rick are running the Great Bristol Half Marathon to raise money for our work supporting refugees in Bristol!  Our target is to raise £3000.

This money will be used to organise events that help refugees to connect and build a sense of community as they rebuild their lives in this country. Over the last year we have organised monthly social events that give refugees a break from the challenges of daily life, the opportunity to get out of the city and enjoy some outdoors space, and a chance to have some fun along with others (read more about these here).

The funding for these events has now come to an end, which is why we are hitting the road and seeking to crowdfund the programme going forwards!

Bethlehem Olive Harvest - Oct 13th-20th 2018

Visit the Holy Land. Meet the People. Learn from the Peacemakers. Contribute in a practical way.

Working in partnership with the Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem, Bridges is again offering the chance for people from the UK to spend a week in October 2018 helping Palestinian farmers to harvest their olives. This is a great way to build awareness of the challenges that people living in the Holy Land face, and to contribute in a simple but practical way towards an important part of the Palestinian way of life.

Experience climbing to the top of an ancient olive tree to pick the last of the olives, explore some of the sights of the Holy Land, savour some wonderful Middle eastern food, and make new friends as you share this wonderful experience together!
