Fair Saturday 30 November 2019 Bristol
3 October, 2019

 

Fair Saturday, a celebration of community organisations and culture in 180 cities around the world, returns on Saturday 30 November 2019, and Bristol is taking part once again.

Falling the day after Black Friday, Fair Saturday serves as an antidote to pre-Christmas sales pushes from large corporations, by championing local causes instead. This can involve anything from community choirs and theatre companies to market stalls and social enterprises.

Black South West Network was delighted to host the last BAME Voluntary Sector Network Meeting for African/Caribbean & Asian heritage organisations on Monday 19 August 2019 at Malcolm X Centre. This meeting provided an opportunity for local BAME-led voluntary sector organisations to meet and find out more about Bristol City Funds from our guest speaker Sue Turner, Quartet Community Foundation.
