Next round of Faiths in Action workshops

Just to give the full picture: these started on Thursday 20th January at the Marlborough Hill Centre in Harrow. We have almost a full house. The idea is to give people of different faiths the chance to come together and build friendships through a shared interest - in this case, embroidery. Some familiar faces from other projects. Meherun, at the Asian Women's Resource Centre, has worked hard to bring people on board.
We have also advertised via Gumtree and local churches.
Leading things this week: Katherine Eves and Katrina Williams, the second workshop of the week for them.
Thanks to our funding from Faiths in Action (via Communities and Local Goverment) we can offer these sewing circles and the materials needed for them, free of charge.
There is also a lunch club at these sessions.
