Syrian Refugee Welcome Day

Local Syrian refugees were invited

 

On 4th December 2018 Syrian refugees from Burnley, Pendle, Accrington and surrounding areas were invited to a Syrian Refugee Welcome Day organised by and held at UCLAN.

The Burnley and Pendle families supported by BPRCVS got to meet other Syrian refugees in the area. Most of the families have not had many opportunities to meet other families relocating and resettling in England. This event was the perfect opportunity to meet their peers and enjoy a bit of company from people in the exact same position as them.

They played games and showed students and other guests some traditional Syrian dances.

Everyone had a fantastic time and many new friends were made.
