    To whom it may concern.

    My name is Mark Lewis and I am a Elder of City Church in Winsdor Place, Cardiff.
    We support Asylum Justice for many years and every Monday we open the doors for the Refugees, for Tea or Coffee prior seeking help and advice from Asylum Justice.
    I have spent time listening to there stories of the hardship in travelling to seek Asylum and how they are treated by the Authorities. I am very ashamed to hear how they treated in the 21st century…..
    Every Saturday I run a Tea and Coffee morning and I want to extend this for the Refugees and other’s. I am aware that there is not much for them to do on a weekend and as a City Centre Church I want to try and help…in providing a safe place for them and some activates.

    I am afraid I will miss your meeting as I am in Lancashire until Tuesday. I would like to give you my contact number to discuss, about what was raised at the meeting and also discuss how we can give them a safe place to come on a Saturday also.

    Cont. 0755 222 1961.

    God Bless

    Mark Lewis.
