Next week is National Baking week to be followed the week after, beginning on the 23rd of October, with Cup of Tea with a Refugee Week. Which means the former could easily support the latter.
The Scottish Refugee Council is encouraging groups across Scotland to host their own Cup of Tea events.
Those taking part in the past have found it a very positive experience.
“A really lovely way to engage with new people. We all have a favourite cuppa and there’s nothing like a brew to share a story over.”
“That was my first time at an event like this and I enjoyed every minute of it. well done for organising.”
“What happened was a community meeting. An engagement of individuals over a shared experience. Simple and hugely effective.”
