This Monday we held an Eid celebration as part of our integration work with Rotherham Military Veterans Centre.
The event held at AESSEAL New York Stadium saw Rotherham Military Veterans, Rotherham’s Mature Millers, One Voice ladies group, and RUCST netball committee come together for a morning of celebrations. The day started with a tour of the stadium, where the groups got to visit the media room, changing rooms, walk down the tunnel and take a seat in the dugout. This was followed by some short speeches from the groups involved about the work they have been doing together over the last 12 months and how their perceptions of each other have changed over that time.
The groups discussed what they have learnt about each other’s culture and how glad they are to have made some friendships and tried some activities that they never thought they would. The event ended with everyone sharing Asian food cooked by Mariam Shah who has been working with the group throughout the project. Rotherham Military Veterans meet at Silverwood Miners Welfare on Fridays 10am-12pm, and Rotherham’s Mature Millers meet at New York Stadium Every Monday 10am-12pm. Both groups welcome new members.
