Support for SCAR

by admin | 10th January 2014

Salisbury Coalition Against Racism received a major boost last night, when Salisbury Area Board awarded a grant of £2,600 to support a major multi cultural event at the Guildhall in the Summer.

Rex Webb of SCAR was delighted to receive the Board’s backing:

“This is great news for us, we feel this is a very important project for Salisbury – celebrating our diverse community. The project also aims to provide a deeper understanding of issues facing communities in Salisbury, helping to develop new inclusion and involvement projects to reduce the incidence of hate crime, creating a safer environment for local people and increasing community involvement for all. It is an event for everyone!”

SCAR are now working to deliver the event that will bring together the many diverse multi cultural family groups living and working across Salisbury and its surrounds, all through an enjoyable active participation of cultural skills, foods, performance, participations, and conversations from across the world. Progressive outreach community based workshops will lead towards a main open house event in Salisbury Guildhall during summer 2014. The project concept is to draw people from different ethnic backgrounds together to share issues, to promote understanding, tolerance and learning, and also to promote and enjoy multiculturalism.
