Van Community Centre, Caerphilly

Race Council Cymru worked with South Wales Jamaican Society and Thornhill Community Centre to deliver an inclusive multicultural community event. The centre launched its very first Windrush Celebration Day with a mix of educational and inspirational speakers and music performances, to create a day of shared history teaching and learning about Windrush Generation and their descendants. We provided a celebration Caribbean lunch with drinks and deserts for the participants. History was shared amongst the variety of participants of all ages 3 (we had nursery children parading their flags at the event) to 90 year olds, from a diverse range of backgrounds. As well as the local community members and the Cymru Windrush Elders, there were representatives from a mix of organisations participating in the event.
