On Sunday 18 Dec 2022, we invited our community members to watch the World Cup Final at our centre. The World Cup is very popular amongst our community members, and we wanted to make sure that our community is able to enjoy the most important games with their fellow Syrians at our warm centre. The final between France and Argentina was thrilling.
Inspired by the happy atmosphere surrounding the World Cup, we invited our Syrian community members to play a 5-aside football at Sugden Sports Centre. Despite the cold weather, the game was played, and it was fun, enjoyable and competitive. 15people played the game and were from different age categories.
On Tuesday 6 Dec, we hosted a social gathering for ladies. It was a great opportunity for ladies to connect with each other in an informal and friendly settings and discuss different issues and concerns facing our community and plan different social activities that respond to the need of Syrians and Arabs in Manchester.
