Thank you to Lord Roger Roberts, Baron Roberts of Llandudno
for hosting Peace of Cake at Houses of Parliament Westminster. Here are some of the comments people wrote about it on our social media:
Asma wrote “Lord Roger Roberts all our guests are commenting on how sincere you are in your ‘Action for Humanity’. Thank you Mark Lavender and Jane Ashley and Becky Dell without whom this would not have come about. Thank you to The Citizens of the world choir and Heidi Alexander Leah D’vorah and all of our @Peace of Cake team that came to support. Thank you again Goldsmiths Community Association and let’s look forward to the launch of our Peace of Cake video!Lots of Cake and lots of conversation. Amazing people. Lovely to see our banner at Westminster. Thank you Sophie Randles-Dunkley for your company, the singing and for the great work you do for refugees. This Season is truly the time to be reflecting on good will and being kind to humanity, regardless of their background. I cannot imagine a more diverse meeting at Parliament that has ever happened. We had people from all walks of life and all there wanting to make a difference to others Peace of Cake #peaceonearth”
Amber Bauer the work you do is so essential and I hope many people can like and share your page. Thank you for supporting Peace of Cake last night. All of you who make a difference every day are inspirational “
Thanks Asma Meer. At the House of Lords for Peace of Cake. Hosted by Lords Roger Roberts who gave a very moving welcome, also talking about refugees in Calais and elsewhere, the importance of getting all 3,000 child refugees here. We were entertained by the Action for Humanity choir….singing Siya Hambs ….their version was “walking in the light of peace”, I’m glad to say.
Honoured to have been invited to at the this evening!
Thank you Goldsmiths Community Association and BenandJerry’s and Phoenix Community Housing #phoenixtogether for your sponsorship and support. What fun, cake and ice-cream was had and many friendships formed. Here are lots of pics of the day, starting with the giant poppy with hand cut outs with messages of Peace. #peaceofcaketog #peaceofcake
We are pleased to invite you to come and share cake again on 11th November at Goldsmiths Community Centre in Catford.
As it is Armistice day, we will be focusing on the message of ‘Never Again’. As it is a Saturday, lots of children will be able to attend with their families, even their grandparents.
In the words of Helen Hamston of Mummy’s Gin Fund ‘it is important for our children to come together with people like them and people who are not like them’. And as it is Armistice Day I wanted to bring the idea of ‘NEVER AGAIN’ to actually mean something. I want to make this one of the biggest and most diverse Peace of Cake’s ever in order to honour the message of ‘Never Again‘.
‘Never Again’ can only be ‘Never Again’ if we start at a local level, if we keep talking, if we show our children that we can live with people like us and with people who are not like us then that is a big start.
The way to honour Armistice – we welcome red poppy wearers, those who do not wear a poppy, white or purple poppy wearers – we want to welcome everyone in solidarity for Peace for our future generations. Let’s start with our children, let’s honour Never Again.
11 November at 13:00–15:00

Becky Dell, one of the attendees wrote this ” So great to be at Peace of Cake’s event at Ben & Jerry’s in Soho earlier today. Spreading a message of peace, unity and understanding, with tea, cake & ice-cream!
There were Muslims, Christians, Bhuddists and aethiests all happily rubbing shoulders today. We have more in common than that which divides us.
I met the wonderful Asma Meer who heads up Peace of Cake at Lewisham Mosque as part of the Visit My Mosque initiative earlier this year. She’s a wonderful lady with a heart full of gold (and peace) – keep an eye out for future events”

Love4Legends is a group of Muslim friends who came up with a simple way to thank the amazing emergency services who heroically risked their lives to save as many people as possible at Grenfell.
Peace of Cake, led by Asma, rose to the occasion and visited Lewisham’s Fire Station. Here are some pictures and copy from Asma’s post on our Facebook page/
Felt so good to be giving back and show appreciation for our Fire Brigade, thanks Love4Legends for this initiative. The Muslim community, Lewisham Islamic Centre, Frankie Turner St John’s Church and Peace of Cake had a wonderful afternoon delivering the hampers and home made cake by Frankie Turner and cake from Le Delice, biryani from Haidy’s and lots of homemade goodies, Hungarian biscuits from Rizwana and lots of juice from Zehra – Thank you again to our emergency services and may you be rewarded for your bravery and compassion – as one firefighter said today – when we save a life we do not see the colour or religion – saving a life is saving a life! To quote surah Maidah again ‘whosoever saves one, it is as if he has saved mankind’. #love4legends, #peaceofcaketog, #lfb
