Helen Hamston, founder of the amazing website and Facebook community Mummy’s Gin Fund has surprised us with a wonderful heartfelt tribute to Asma and Peace of Cake by nominating her for a Pride of Britain Award. She’s nominated Asma for this reason
“Asma epitomizes all that is great about sisterhood, community and cohesion. She walks into rooms of people who are scared of her, want to hurt her, reject her beliefs, believe she should ‘go home’, think she is oppressed, blame her for terrorism and hate her. She walks in with her head held high and her arms outstretched. It doesn’t matter who she is talking to – she makes them feel equal and valued. Through her, our community is learning to embrace difference and our children are being taught that we are all the same. She is making the world a better place.”

Helen and Asma
We’re utterly honoured to be recognised – thank you so much Helen – you’re just as inspirational to us! Without Mummy’s Gin Fund, we wouldn’t be able to publicise our events or reach the community so easily.

Our next Peace of Cake event will be at St Mark’s Church in Catford, SE6. Hope to see you there, we need a bit of love and conversation especially after the last few weeks of such sad and frustrating news/events in our city.
Below is a slideshow showing Asma and Peace of Cake at the Big Iftar in Southwark – part of the Great Get Together weekend .
Our first event held at Torridon Junior School went amazingly well. So many children at first who couldn’t believe their luck with the wonderful cake donated by our friends and members. There was a fantastic turnout throughout the event which ran until 7pm. See below for a slideshow of pictures
We lit a candle in memoriam for the victims of the Manchester attack and shared a moment of silence in remembrance. Asma Meer spoke of her wish to spread Peace of Cake so if you want to have a gathering – just click here We hope many people are more aware now of DKMS and their work to encourage more donors.
Thank you everyone for coming.
Peace of Cake will be attending this fantastic event – please come – all are welcome of any or no faith. Bring some food and drink to share and come together in peace.
From our founder – Asma Meer
“Peace and solidarity – we are all one family – IS stop now before you transgress even the boundaries of hell! Allies, please stop as well before we lose too many innocent lives. Look at these people, who wouldn’t want to live in a world peacefully with such beautiful people. I say to all those who say ‘enough’:- “you can never have enough vigils, you can never have enough dialogue, you can never stop trying to change the world for the better, you can never give up hope”
