Today marks the start of Refugee Week and if this hasn’t yet been on your radar, it’s definitely not too late to get involved.
Being a food-loving capital, there are lots of tasty events being hosted all over the city that aim not just to raise money, but also understanding.
Food has always been one of the simplest ways to bring people together and to share our heritage and cultures. Since you’re likely to be out eating and drinking with friends, anyway, why not show your support at one of these great-sounding events?
