Polish Klan Association is inviting you to take part in our project “Easter Community Baskets – learn with us Polish traditions”. This project is mainly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and partly by Polish Embassy in London.
Easter Community Baskets are packages of polish traditional items, creative art material, leaflets explaining and describing Polish traditions but also chocolate eggs and bunnies. The baskets will contain a wide range of Easter arts and crafts to immerse themselves in, in the comfort of their own home. Play and creative arts are a well-known outlet for supporting emotional health in children but also for adults. The resources are of an educational and fun nature to ignite enthusiasm, creativity and innovative ideas and to discover the polish tradition, and therefore bring communities together.
We will deliver 60 baskets to local residents in London Borough of Hounslow and further 40 to residents of surrounding areas which will be delivered or collected on 27th March 2021.
These parcels will be gifted to single parents, vulnerable individuals and families who are struggling through these difficult times. The families may be using food banks, may be under financial stress, and may have lost a loved one to the virus or their existing condition heightened due to the anxiety levels around or change in routine.
Besides we will have – LIVE ZOOM EVENT on 28th March 2021 – “Learn with us Polish Easter traditions” which will be open for up to 300 of participants from different communities as everyone can join us after registration.
Please register for your zoom invitation on Eventbrite – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/learn-with-us-polish-easter-traditions-tickets-142175144685
We would like to bring people together as last Christmas we saw over 100 individuals benefit, putting smiles on faces over the festive season, and feel good for the people that are feeling lonely.
Our project is about getting close to the local community. The aim is to promote and celebrate Polish culture and tradition of Easter celebration. We believe that a wider range of local people will be involved in our project and this will give them a better understanding of polish culture.
