11th November 2017 Peace of Cake

PoC11.11

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.

Children's Peace of Cake is coming

 

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”

Love 4 Legends and Peace of Cake

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

Thank you Mummy’s Gin Fund!!

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.

If you are on twitter – please tweet your support for Asma to @tsb and @prideofbritain using the #prideofbritain, @peaceofcaketog and @ginfund.
