Saturday 1st April 2017

A HUGE thank you to everyone that came along to support this event which was a roaring success!

Great company, wonderful speakers, a huge raffle and most importantly delicious food.

It was an evening to celebrate Syrian cuisine and to support and raise awareness for the humanitarian crisis happening right now in Syria. We were supported very generously by local friends, businesses and publishers, for which we thank you.

A whopping £1,300 was raised and is being donted to Unicef's Children of Syria fund.

We had a wonderful evening and hope that everyone enjoyed it!
