The asylum seekers, both children and adults, loved the shows! Even the staff loved the shows! Here is what a couple of them said:
“Magic for smiles along with care4calais put on an wonderful show. The kids at the hotel were incredibly happy. As a collective we would like to say massive thank you to the magician, Tamzin and all those involved who made it a magical day here in Hounslow.”
“One of the most beautiful experiences we have had in this hotel has been the FAMOUS MAGICIAN 🎩 – unforgettable show for all ages. For the children full of mystery and many interesting questions came out of them and for the adults it was simply fun and intrigue. All the residents here will remember this show with joy and would like it to return.”
I helped organise this with Jamie and another volunteer. Jamie was easy to work with, adaptable (some shows were outside where inside space was not available) and things ran smoothly.
