Joel has been seeking asylum in the UK for two years and in that time has proved himself to be an asset to the local community, taking part in many community and charity projects since living in Bristol.
He is a club secretary and valued member of the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls Sports and Social Club and a committed member of St Nicholas of Tolentino Church in Easton, through which he has participated in various charity initiatives.
He was detained in an Immigration Removal Centre for the past month and has been issued with an immigration removal order which could see him placed on a flight to Cameroon at any time.
