Big Iftar – part of the ‘Great Get Together’
EYST (The Ethnic Youth Support Team) is participating in this years ‘The Great Get Together’ by organising a Big Iftar. The event is in memory of Jo Cox. Jo believed that people had far more in common than that which could divide them, and so it is this belief that EYST want to honour and bring to the community.
EYST would like people from all backgrounds to come together and celebrate all that unites us.
The Iftar is the meal which is eaten after sunset marking the end of the daily Ramadan fast.
EYST invites you to join them for the Big Iftar meal on Saturday 17th June 2017 at 8.30pm in EYST’s Drop In Centre at Unit B, 11, St Helen Road Swansea SA1 4AB. There
There are a number of Great Get Together events around Swansea which have been organised (often with little resources and with much often last minute help from volunteers) within communities across the city. Why not meet your neighbours and join in the fun?
Get in touch with Swansea News Network (SNN) if you wish to publicise similar community events and SNN will do our best to help. Please, kindly bear in mind that the project is dependent on volunteers as community reporters and contributors. The community has many stories to tell and share and the project is helping to achieve this.
What is Swansea News Network?
Swansea News Network is a community journalism, not for profit, start-up project that enables people to empower their communities by sharing positive news and progressive stories.
Swansea News Network would love to hear from you.
Do you work or volunteer at a project doing good work in Swansea that you want to shout about? Do you have a gig or event you’d like more of your local community to know about? Would you like to write for Swansea News Network? Are you interested in volunteering? Want to get involved? Have an idea for an article? Enjoy photography or using video? Handy with websites? Fancy yourself as an arts reviewer? Why not read ‘What is Swansea News Network?’ on the website to find out more or email us to see how you could help. We would love to hear from you.
Swansea News Network will look at stories from elsewhere as well as those that locally reflect on our own lives in the Swansea area. We want a connected world. As the project develops we will inform about local and global issues, signpost about projects and link people making positive changes within the community. We commit to treating everyone – regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age – with respect, and without judgment or bias.
