Connect Refugee Festival Scotland

connect reportOn 29th of June 2017, Volunteer Centre Borders held a 'Connect Borders' event as part of the nation-wide 'Connect Refugee Festival Scotland' programme delivered by the Scottish Refugee Council. With a grant from the SRC, we organised a range of fun activities and games at Galashiels Focus Centre aimed at celebrating the connections we have made with our new Syrian friends now living with us in the Scottish Borders region.

Our event was a celebration spanning the traditions of both Scotland and Syria in the areas of language, food, dance, music, humour, friendship and so much more!
