Reading Refuge Support Group volunteer Tomson Chauke was awarded his British citizenship last week, with the Mayor of Reading in attendance.

Mr Chauke has been a British resident for almost 20 years after leaving Zimbabwe during the difficult political situation of the early 2000s.

Arriving in Reading with a solitary friend, Mr Chauke now has a wide network of people he can call a friend.

Speaking exclusively to the Reading Chronicle, Mr Chauke said: “The political situation in Zimbabwe was rife and things were not good for us musicians.
