On 9 November the Countess of Wessex joined Wivey Welcomes Refugees in Wiveliscombe to meet some of the 70 Ukranians living in the area. Wivey Welcomes Refugees was one of the first groups in Somerset to receive a grant from SSU which is funding additional English language lessons, supplies for regular social meetings and transport costs for necessary trips into Taunton and back. Somerset Supports Ukraine attended this wonderful event, meeting the Countess of Wessex and explaining a bit more about how we are supporting local charities and community groups across Somerset.
