As part of our new project ‘Coming in from the Cold’ we will be working closely with the Manchester BME Network. On 14th March at Burnage Community Centre, Jennie and Marzuqa attended a tea party organised by the BME Network to celebrate International Women’s Day. It was a lovely way to meet representatives from organisations across the city and hear their stories of strength and achievement. These are the sort of stories we hope to capture for the archive during the second phase of our project. We also enjoyed eating delicious food and catching up with old friends.
