Human Rights coffee morning
10:01am Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in What's on
CLYNFYW Care Farm, Abercych, is holding a Coffee Morning on Friday December 13 to help raise the profile of the British Institute of Human Rights.
The event, starting at 10.30am, is part of Human Rights Week, and aims to raise some greatly needed funds.
“Founded over 40 years ago, the British Institute of Human Rights is a small independent human rights charity that is committed to bringing rights to life across the UK,” said Fiona Pedlar, Clynfyw’s Human Rights Officer.
“Their mission is to support and empower people and organisations to use human rights to improve their own lives and the lives of others. We are delighted to have been recognised by them as one of Pembrokeshire’s Human Rights Champions. It is a great honour, and gives us a lot to live up to. This coffee morning marks the start of our work in this role. Over 50 people came here and raised £101.50 for the British Hen Welfare Trust during our November coffee morning. With other groups including Amnesty International and Newcastle Emlyn School being involved in this one, we are optimistic it will be a really worthwhile day.”
Clynfyw hosts a coffee morning on the second Friday of each month, all welcome.
