Raising funds for kids’ art classes in refugee camps in Greece.

Raising funds for kids’ art classes in refugee camps in Greece.

As many of you know, Jonny is currently running art workshops for refugee children in Northern Greece. We urgently need some help to continue this project. The conditions for children in the camps is very hard; there is little or no formal education, structure or stimulation for them.

You can donate here: http://tinyurl.com/jax8yrq
Or if you are in Sweden, you can swish Joanna on 0736-800 444.

We have volunteers of all kinds on the project; art teachers, actors, playwrights & artists from England, Wales, Greece, the States and Syria. We have refugee artists, parents & translators in the team and we hope that they will be able to expand this project. All volunteer team members pay their own way & give their own time for free, fund transport to & from the camps and purchase art supplies.

The team has been running daily English-Arabic/Kurdish workshops in both military-run refugee camps on the outskirts of Thessaloniki & in Goumenissa, a small town near the Macedonian border, for the Syrian children brought there by our sister housing project.

If you would like any more information or would like to get involved in the project, please get in touch with Jonny or Joanna on Facebook or Instagram (jonnybradford74) or email jonnybradford74@gmail.com.

Many thanks!

Joanna & Jonny





Every penny still counts!

As you all know, we are Jonny and Joanna, and we have been volunteering for Lighthouse Relief, a small non-profit social enterprise registered in Sweden. We are now part of a small group of volunteers called ‘Share the Magic.’ Currently we are moving a few families out of the camps, as well as running an art class for children in one of the camps, and doing whatever else we possibly can.

Every penny we collect goes to helping refugees. We fund our own travels to and from Greece.

If you are in Sweden and would like to make a donation, please Swish Joanna on: 0736-800 444.

If you are outside Sweden and would like to donate to Share the Magic, you can donate here at our fundraising page, or here are our UK Halifax bank account details:
