Mrs Ansell said, “On very difficult days like we have witnessed there can be joy too. If you are able to play your part please sign up to offer help for refugees.

“Already I received confirmation from one who had reached the UK safely with his family.

“This has been an incredibly fast moving situation but British officials and soldiers have been on the ground assisting with the evacuation effort.”
