Local members of Soroptimist International collected £380 for the refuges on Monday, December 3.

One commuter even said: “Thanks for what you’re doing to support the refuges – you sound great!”

Several children joined in by singing and dancing and even more people filmed it on smartphones.

A particular attraction was Jules the dog who encouraged people to give donations and strokes.
