The 7th annual NPC&PC went ahead very successfully,

Many people attended, participated, engaged in dialogue and we hope benefitted and learnt from coming.

Nearly all last year’s members participated and there were some new ones as well.

Although this is primarily an awareness event we nevertheless also managed to raise £240 in donations for refreshments and other items and through the charity auction. This will go to St Martin’s Housing Trust for the homeless, Phoenix Mile Cross Children’s Project and the Gaza Trauma Clinic. In additon £200 were raised through sale of Palestinian olive oil and other related items all of which goes directly into the Palestinian economy and £180 from sale of Palestinian carved olive wood crafts by Laura Abraham of the International Peace Cycle which will go to a project in Bethlehem.

We would like to thank the Forum Trust and staff for making the venue available and assisting us so well, The Mayor of Norwich for attending yet again as well as both Norwich MPs and Rev Janet Wyer of St Peter Mancroft Church who also spoke to us after the Mayor, also Dr Ian Gibson for starting the Peace Cycle.

We would also like to thank all those who came to visit, donated and gave and hope that they found this unique event something that they will wish to remember

Next year’s event is currently booked for 22nd of June all day at the Forum again
