Members of the Wanstead Quakers have joined forces with a number of other religious groups to sponsor a family of Syrian refugees.

"We are applying to welcome a refugee family to live in Redbridge and to help them integrate into life in the UK over a two-year period," said a spokesperson for Redbridge Community Support, which needs to raise £9,000 to fund the family's expenses.

The group are also seeking a landlord willing to accept local housing rate to provide the family with a home.
