In the name of charity, DSSR Associate Carina McKinney plunged herself into a canal during the notoriously freezing Scottish winter.

Carina and her charity fundraising group, The Big Frosty Dip, did so to raise funds for Refuweegee, a community-led charity that was set up to provide a warm welcome to forcibly displaced people arriving in Glasgow.

Refuweegee was set up by Selina Hales in December 2015 to provide a warm welcome to forcibly displaced people arriving in Glasgow.

As a result of the amazing response from people in Glasgow and beyond, we have provided over 10,000 community-built, personal welcome packs and emergency support packs to people all over Glasgow and across Scotland.

Our aim is to enable the existing community in extending the friendly welcome that Glasgow is world renowned for.

We work with multiple organisations around Scotland, from our partners who distribute welcome packs through to schools and community organisations looking to do something similar in their area.

We love hearing from other individuals, organisations, groups and projects and collaborating wherever we can on the very simple objective of making the world a nicer place to live.
