The store was turned into a campaign centre during Refugee Week from June 15 to 21 and shoppers were encouraged to write a personal message to a refugee on a Welcome to Britain postcard.

Customers also had the chance to see Refugee Action’s new film Forced to Flee on in-store televisions and were encouraged to become involved in Refugee Week’s Simple Acts campaign.
