Burnley Light Night

Adding light to Syrian's lives

BPRCVS took some of the Syrian refugees we support to attend ESOL classes to come along and get involved in the Burnley Light Night Parade.

On Saturday 8th December 2018 three Syrian refugees and their BPRCVS coordinator, Allison Lindgren, walked in the Burnley Light Night Parade in Burnley Town Centre. We arrived early for set up, refreshments, and face painting and then began the parade at 5:00 p.m.

The theme for the parade was “Journey to the Night Sky.” The refugees represented the stars and carried large stars and led the children carrying smaller stars behind them.

They had a fantastic time walking in the parade and have already expressed interest in participating again next year.
