The Ukraine Welcome Cafe has been running since May on a Monday, between 18-30 and 20-00 at St Laurence Church Hall in Stroud and between 30-40 attend.
It is run by various volunteers and it’s sole purpose is a central meeting place where languages and cultures can be exchanged and experiences shared. Refreshments are provided plus various activities such as language games, some art and craft work. A recipe is cooked and shared each month
How can you help? Anyone is welcome to turn up although the organisers are conscious they don’t want to overwhelm the Ukrainians or avoid more English than Ukrainian being spoken, If anyone can provide art session or some therapeutic support that would be most welcome. As the cafe is solely reliant on fundraising donation or even cake are most welcome!
Please note that we are running a limited café throughout the summer. The summer dates are 15th and 22nd August. We hope to continue weekly after that
