The management group of Bold Vision would like to announce their AGM this coming 4th April 2017 at 6.30pm in the Hill Station.
Refreshments will be served.
Join us for a convivial evening of jazz (Paul Milnes and friends) and pizza (Bosco and Bee). Pizza from 6pm. Music a bit later. This is not a ticketed event but we would love you to make a donation by clicking here. Proceeds will be split between the Refugee Twinning project and Hill Station maintenance. Food and drink will be on sale at the event.
We are looking for two kinds of help:
This exciting community action is gathering steam. Do something positive. Come along and get involved. Everybody is welcome.
Come along and get involved! If you can write, speak Arabic, raise funds, have ideas, project manage, have good contacts, run events, build things…. we’d love you to be on board with one of our twinning projects to support the human in the refugee camp
Next meeting : 7pm, Sat Jul 16th, Hill Station
Our refugee action meeting on Jun 25 made amazing progress. 16 of us, including lots of new faces, gathered to discuss the project so far (Phase 1), outcomes of impact report and next steps. We also heard from Pamela who has spent time volunteering in Calais, and Boz who is working on a radio soap opera with Syrian refugees.
We focused primarily on the need to raise £14k for Phase 2.
Although there was some support for the original concept of the high profile evening event, it was generally felt that it was both too ambitious in the time frame and not necessary given the required budget. It was held as a concept for Phase 3 and a reconfigured idea was discussed to raise funds and awareness for Phase 2.
In its new format, the evening becomes a several day event building awareness and support. We discussed the following possible elements:
Other events for Thurs / Fri featuring eg
It is Refugee Week this week – and Global Refugee Day today.
What we are doing with Artmongers and Bold Vision is small, but at least it works. Even if only a few dozen people have better well-being, it’s a start. It’s better than despairing or turning away.
You can be part of the next phase by coming along to our meeting at the Hill Station on Sat Jun 25, 7-9pm.
Or you can donate here.
Today we are publishing our Impact Report about the first phase of the project. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
