One hundred years ago a declaration by the British Foreign Secretary, Arthur Balfour, paved the way for the establishment of Israel in British Mandate Palestine. Appalling conflicts have followed. What was Britain’s role? What responsibilities did we have then and now? What should Britain do today in relation to both Israel and Palestine?

All welcome. Entry free - collection for the Palestine Trauma Centre Refreshments available Organised by Brent Friends of Palestine, a group raising awareness of the situation in Palestine and promoting the Palestine Trauma Centre (PTC), which is based in Gaza and provides emotional and psychological support to children and their families.


These families have suffered as a result of the destruction of homes, schools and hospitals in Gaza and the current blockade.


We raise funds for the PTC’s Fridays of Joy project which takes play workers, entertainers and therapists into villages, schools and refugee camps to provide an experience of fun and hope.


Regular standing orders – even for small amounts – are particularly useful.
