Each month the LGBT Asylum Task Force holds a community dinner for asylum seekers and interested members of the wider community. Different groups take turns making the dinner and then staying to meet asylum seekers if they wish. We have done this in the past and it was very fun and rewarding. It involves cooking dinner for 30 – 50 people – either at our church or at your home and then taking it over to Hadwen Park Church where the dinner is held. The next dinner that’s open is Monday, November 8 and it lasts from 6 – 7:30.
Please let me know if you are interested in helping out with this venture. It’s a great way to learn more about the Task Force and to meet some amazing asylum seekers. Please email me at denise dot darrigrand at gmail dot com and let me know if you’re willing to help. Thanks!
