Cross-cultural event to welcome Ukrainian refugees into Warkworth community

Warkworth Ukraine Support Group is holding a fundraising event with stalls, refreshments and entertainment.

Monday, 13th June 2022, 1:49 pm

The concept is to help the new arrivals learn more about Northumbrian culture, and to bring different groups and generations together.

It is hoped that hosts will also bring their Ukrainian visitors along and that they may wish to contribute some of their own music and crafts heritage.

The event takes place on Saturday, June 18 at Warkworth URC Hall and everyone is welcome.
