21:00: Finish

Our theme, this year, is bedding-in and sustainability and our venue and partners have been chosen with this in mind:

  • All Hallows Church do lots of work with asylum seekers and refugees, and their work is entwined with many diverse groups and traditions in the community.
  • Rainbow Junk-tion are providing us with a veggie and vegan feast, created from food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, and restaurants.
  • Hyde Park Source will help us to create a little pot of welcome – a plant-pot that you’ve decorated with a message of peace and friendship, with a bulb inside – that you can give away to a friend, a neighbour, or a stranger on your street.

Doors will open at 17:30, when coffee and tea will be available.

The AGM will start promptly at 18:00, and will last no longer than 30 minutes.

Please, bring your family and friends to help us celebrate the different ways of welcoming asylum seekers and refugees to Leeds. Everyone is welcome, and no-one is too old or too young to come to this evening of fun, food and celebration.

And finally… and apology. After we had chosen and publicised the date of our AGM, we found it clashes with the Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. We’re really sorry about this, and very sad that this mean some of our volunteers and supporters will not be able to join us. We’ll make sure this doesn’t happen again.
