A Big ‘Routes to Peace’ Thank you!

Routes to Peace Banner

What a day!

Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the Routes to Peace finale and the launch of the Routes to Peace Heritage Trail such a big success yesterday; we had a wonderful and very busy day. Centenary Square was packed with children and it was great to see so many passers by joining in and looking at the stalls. So many people to thank  including the Lord Mayor Councillor Khadim Hussain, Tony Reeves, Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Schools Linking Network,  Kala Sangam, the Alhambra Studios, Bradford 1 Gallery, Culture Fusion, University of Bradford – Peace Studies, Rachel Ward, Maureen Singh, Helen Richmond, Roger Davies, Bella  Gaffney, Ben Chalcraft, Dusty Rhodes, Raise the Roof and the Innovation and Cohesion Works.  Our new interns (see the Meet the Team page) were really thrown in at the deep end and made an excellent contribution. The pupils who worked with us and tried out the Aurasma app and Routes to Peace Heritage Trail from Girlington and Westminster Primary schools were a pleasure and seemed to really enjoy the day. Our 18 Peacemakers from Carlton Bolling College and Bowling Park were FAB.  Definitely future leaders and change makers! The Big Sing was a huge success and Thornton Grammar School’s singers, musicians and songwriters performed their own song about growing up in Bradford ‘City of Dreams and the final line said it all what is important for peace is ‘respect and equality’. Finally a very big thank you to all the wonderful pupils, teachers, parents and members of the public, who were so supportive on the day. We couldn’t have done it without you! http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/10510211.Song_of_peace_is_previewed_at_Bradford_Centenary_Square/?ref=twtrec http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/video/2511005082001/?ref=vidshare IMG_0946 (1)IMG_0951 IMG_0980IMG_1341IMG_1354IMG_1250IMG_1327IMG_1264IMG_1175 (1)IMG_1163IMG_1089
