On 25th January we had a singing workshop in Hebden Bridge. We had hired Hope Baptist Church so we could have a workshop for children and young people led by Lynn and Denny and a workshop for adults led by Francis.
Everyone arrived at 10am and had breakfast before starting the workshops. At 1pm we had a vegetable curry with rice an pita bread made by Scott Patient. There were fruits, juices, hot drinks, breads and snacks throughout the day.
After lunch some more practising before the performance in the big hall – filmed and audio recorded by Nick Wilding. We hope we will be able to show the film on our Facebook page and website in the near future.
The day ended with lots of clothes, shoes, blankets, toys, etc to be chosen and taken home by the refugees and asylum seekers.
About 40 people participated in the event. Special thanks to Francis, Lynn, Denny, Scott, Nick and our various volunteers. Also thanks to Hope Baptist Church for hosting the event and to everyone who had donated a car full of clothes, etc.
