Many thanks to Magic Little Grant for their £500 donation to Together We Grow. We will use this money for leisure activities for asylum seekers as they only have £5.75 to live on per day, which has to cover food, transport, telephone, clothes, toothpaste, etc. etc.

A great mixture of nationalities and cultures participated. Some Asian women offered to make a Pakistani cookery class after […]
