One member said: “Any of us could become refugees. It’s our duty as part of a civilised society to show compassion to people whose lives have been shattered.” It is the generosity of those who can help which will make all the difference."

Shallal is the second charity, based in Cornwall.

It is devoted to making the arts available to everybody. The leaders run ongoing community groups, specialist sessions and an inclusive community dance theatre company to inspire creativity and encourage diversity.

For more than 25 years, Shallal has provided a kind, supporting and entertaining environment for people to explore the arts and find their voices.
