As part of Refugee Week 2021, the Ruth Hayman Trust is delighted to be hosting our first online event on Wednesday 16th June at 6pm. This will be a conversation between two of our distinguished patrons: broadcaster Sue MacGregor of ‘Woman’s hour’, ‘Today’ and ‘The Reunion’ fame, and Lord Alf Dubs, a life peer and former Director of the Refugee Council, who has personal experience of life as a refugee having arrived in Britain as a six-year-old Kindertransport child from Czechoslovakia. He will be sharing his memories of settling into a new life in the UK and describing his recent campaign for the rights of unaccompanied child refugees to be reunited with family members.
