Organised by The Convention, this event will raise funds for the Wonder Foundation which, with its Polish partners, Panorama and Pontes, will provide long-term support for 600 families over the next year including accommodation for 125, as well as help with employment, education and assimilation to Polish society.

We are also supporting Katalyst, a food business incubator in Moldova that pivoted within hours of the invasion to preparing meals for refugees arriving in Europe’s poorest country, and providing them with food packages, accommodation, work and education.

Meeting the needs of the largest refugee crisis in Europe since 1945 is one of the great challenges of our time. The appalling things being done by Russian forces in Ukraine are in some way being countered by an extraordinary outpouring of generosity and commitment along Europe’s eastern border. After the UK’s shameful initial response, we are extremely glad to be part of this unprecedented effort in Europe. We hope you will be, too.

Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack Read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas in Support of The Mill at Sonning

From Sally at The Mill at Sonning:

“The Mill has had so many stops & starts over the last few months. Now it is onwards & upwards. Thank you for your support during this challenging year. You have been amazing.

I have conspired, with actors and friends, to put together a little Christmas entertainment for you. We have thrown everything cute into the mix from falling snow and beloved pets, to Christmas jumpers and Christmas trees. Even my Grandson has a tiny part. The cast – and what a cast! – have been so inventive when filming their lines at home. Lucy Fleming, Simon Williams, Tam & Danny Williams – 3 generations of Williamses !! Roz & Brian Blessed with doggie Milo. Jeremy Irons & Sinead Cusack. Two lovely actresses who often grace The Mill’s stage Elizabeth Elvin and Amber Edlin. And my good friend all the way from the USA – one of the original Ghostbusters – Ernie Hudson. Plus a final wave from my 2 year old grandson, Quint Okupniak Rolston. The piece has been beautifully illustrated by The Mill’s scenic artist Natasha Elcox. You will be charmed by the whole thing.”
