To mark National Hate Crime Awareness Week (12th – 19th October), the Warwickshire Hate Crime Partnership are hosting Warwickshire’s Cake Not Hate Get-Together 2019 on Saturday 19th October, 11:00 – 14:00, at the Royal Spa Centre, Leamington Spa CV32 4HN.
You can book your place by heading to our Eventbrite booking page.
Cake Not Hate will bring together our local communities, to share their homemade bakes and hear from inspirational speakers about hate crime.
The event is free, but we are hoping as many attendees as possible bring their own homemade cakes & bakes with you to share. These can be your personal favourites, specialties, or something which reflects yourself and your identity. Star of The Great British Bake Off, Ali Imdad, will be part of this event, so get your aprons on!
As well as the great variety of treats to enjoy, you will also hear from Figen Murray, whose son Martyn Hett was one of the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena Attack in 2017. Figen will deliver a powerful and inspirational talk about her experience of forgiveness and messages to bring communities together.
Clockwise from top left: Figen Murray with her son, Martyn Hett; Chef and ‘Bake Off’ star Ali Imdad; and BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s Trish Adudu.
An expert panel of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Warwickshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service will be able to shed further light on this, and answer relevant questions about hate crime in Warwickshire and how it is dealt with.
The event follows on from the huge success of 2018’s ‘Love Instead of Hate’ event in Bedworth.
We can’t wait to celebrate Warwickshire’s bright diversity with you all, with some delicious treats. Spaces will be limited so book on now to avoid disappointment. Nothing brings people together like a cup of tea and a slice of cake!
Book your free place now by visiting our Eventbrite page, and share the link and details with everyone in your community to get as many people as possible involved in this great event!
