A TASTE OF SYRIA This was a joyous end to Refugee Week in Malvern. We feasted on a variety delicious dishes and inhaled the aroma of exotic spices. We had sold out of tickets long before the day and we were delighted that we raised over £800 to help people who are displaced. What a wonderful community event! Thank you to all our brilliant cooks, the people who came to translate for our Syrian guests, and to Martin Thorne and friends for their lovely, gentle atmospheric music. Thanks also to the extremely generous Vintage Café in Malvern Link for allowing us to host the event. ... See MoreSee Less
Reading About Refugees Karen Argent gave a fascinating talk at the Malvern Book Co-operative. She highlighted the wealth of literature that is available which tells refugee stories from a variety of perspectives. Good quality fiction can help people to understand about situations that they may never experience in their own lives. This talk focussed mainly on books for children and teenagers but we all went away from Karen’s insightful and passionate presentation eager to read some of the books which she had recommended.
As part of her project Karen gives inspiring talks about books in nurseries, schools and other community settings to children and adults of all ages She can be contacted at email@example.com A list of recommended books can be found on the Malvern Welcomes website: www.malvernwelcomes.org/resources/...
