18th March 2020: It is with real sadness that we have decided that it isn’t possible to run our Eagles Wing sessions during this virus crisis. We have consulted with both of the Churches we use and it would not be advisable for us to continue.
This is a great loss to all our friends who come together for friendship and support every week, and more so for those who rely on the Red Cross Destitution money to survive.
But we can’t find a way to carry on, so but there will NOT be the usual Drop in with food and friendship.
Thank you all for supporting us for so long. We will be back as soon as the virus stops!
Eagles Wing are a mutual support group for asylum seekers and local people in Bury, Lancashire. Their aim is to befriend newcomers to our town. Old friends can make sure that no one is lonely and isolated when they arrive here.
They have members who have come from all over the world, speaking many different languages. A warm welcome is guaranteed to all who join them.
There’s lots going on! So, please take a look below for details of where and when they meet:
At St John and St Mark’s we’re very pleased to work alongside Eagles Wing and provide a home for the Solidarity Social Parties. These meet on the second Saturday of the month, with one or two breaks during the year.
Stay as friends
If you’d like to come along to the Socials or get involved in their work during the week then you’d be very welcome!
Please contact Sue Arnall: email@example.com
Come as strangers, stay as friends. Yes, indeed.
