At the Circuit Meeting last November, we heard about the work of the Slough Refugee Support (SRS) group. As a Circuit, we made a donation, and also promised (as part of our “Hospitality” theme) practical assistance when and where we could help.
We have now heard about two events during August, for which Keriann, who spoke at the Circuit Meeting, is asking for our help:
2nd August - A Play Day.
This is a community-run event at Salt Hill Park, to which SRS contributes. It runs from 12 noon till 4 pm for the “customers”. Keriann is after volunteers who could go early or come at the end (or both) to assist in putting up / taking down tables, gazebos etc. She is also seeking help with administration – such as photocopying. There is also a “teddy-bear” event, for which she would like some NEW teddies please.
16th August - The Summer Party.
This annual event is held at the Slough Refugee Support Centre, next to
Salt Hill Park on the Bath Road from 1.30 pm until 4 pm. Again, Keriann would like help beforehand with setting up from about 9.30 am – bunting, chairs, food – and clearing up afterwards. She might also appreciate some help running the children’s games. Prior to 16th, she would welcome help with tidying the garden at the centre. Any volunteers please?
