Endorsement

Melissa’s true dedication and passion to spearhead the movement Ipswich Town of Sanctuary against all odds, illustrates her pure determination and courage. She has worked tirelessly to help one of the most vulnerable groups of people in the world, living in our town of Ipswich – all voluntarily. Melissa has raised awareness throughout businesses, organisations and local government about sanctuary seekers. I endorse her work and her achievements.
