A letter from volunteer, Ian Gee.

“Many people ask me, why did I become involved with the residents of the hotel? My response pretty much follows the words of the great actress Ruth Gordon in one of my favourite films ‘Harold and Maud’.  When asked why she was good with people, she replied ‘Well they are my species’.  I feel proud to say asylum seekers are as much my species as is anyone who has taken the time to read this letter”. – Ian Gee, Pickwell Volunteer
