Syrian Picnic

8th July 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

‘Syria, the crisis deepens.

March this year marked the seventh anniversary of the Syrian uprising. Since then, more than 400,000 people have died, some due to bombs, some due to torture, and some due to deliberate starvation and the denial of medicine and medical equipment. Many thousands more are missing, and on top of this, at least 5.6 million Syrian refugees are now scattered around the world. They have become part of the biggest refugee crisis since the Second World War. In the June Newsdairy there were stark figures from the U.N that demonstrate worldwide that the need to support refugees is as great as ever.

On Sunday July 8th from 1.30 – 4.00pm St Gerrans and St Philleigh  are holding a Syrian Picnic Lunch in the garden at Trelowen, Rosevine, TR25EN to which you are all invited. All donations raised will go to support the work of refugee charities both locally and nationally. There will information about these charities at the lunch.

The menu will be simple and vegetarian, and will incorporate a variety of Middle Eastern foods, including falafel, hummous and pitta breads, chickpea, aubergine and couscous salads, Syrian Moussaka and Cheese and Spinach Filo Pie, followed by such delights as Syrian Apple Cake and Orange and Polenta cake.

We ask that everyone brings their own rugs, chairs, picnic plates and knives and forks. Water, soft drinks, coffee and tea will be available, but please feel welcome to bring a bottle of something alcoholic if you prefer. (Likewise, if you feel you would like to bring an item of food that you particularly enjoy, please do so.)

We would like an idea of numbers for catering purposes, so please contact Jill Edwards for more information on 01872 580117 or jill@jilledwards.com, or Gill Mace on 01872 580149 or bohortha@gmail.com if you would like to come along.’
