Peace Event Review by Chi Bennett:

I had a really great time at the Peace Event on Saturday. Thank you to Slain for coming up with the idea of bring the community together in solidarity to raise money for the British Red Cross who are supporting Ukrainian refugees. We made £805!

It was a lovely day, bringing fun, laughter and art to diverse communities at a time of high anxiety. The poster for the event was designed by local artist Azza Gasim who is based at The Plot on Union Street.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered:

Matt Powell, Jenny Eden, Kevin Rowley, Trace Jared-Davis and Omnium Radio crew, Stefan Daniel, Ceri Baker, John Michael Spurling, Calvin Bedford, Cornelia Agapescu, Amie Rapson.

Thanks to all the stall holders, performers, audience.

Thank you to all the organisations who supported:

Nudge Community Builders, Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality Council, Pride in Plymouth Online Community, Union Corner - Stonehouse Action, Oasis Project, home of The Plymouth Foodbank, Omnium Radio, William Telford from Plymouth Evening Herald.
