Oyster cards for asylum seekers

Local charity West London Welcome helps asylum seekers, hundreds of whom have been placed in nearby hotels during the pandemic. Many have been waiting over a year to be considered for refugee status and many are still waiting for the £8pw which the Home Office gives to cover all necessities apart from meals.Without money, travel anywhere other than by foot is impossible. English classes and colleges are often miles away.

So a really useful gift is an Oyster card which many of us have lying around unused since moving to contactless. Please donate any spare Oysters (check they’re not registered to your account and are in credit) to the office or to Margaret Magnusson.
