An evening of Middle Eastern delicacies, musical and comic delights and thought-provoking stories. What a wonderful success the 2016 Firefly Gala was. We raised over £10,000 which went directly to support youth in conflict situations in the Balkans and Middle East.
Thank you so much to all those who came along and made this event such a success. The committee are now busy making this year’s gala bigger and better than ever before. Look out for our updates on who will be performing, for now all you need to do is get the 21st November 2017 in your diary.
What has Firefly achieved in the last year?
In the past year Firefly has been helping Syrian refugees in the Turkish city of Antakya to set up an education centre. The focus is on reintegrating children who have been forced to work, back into school.
Firefly has continued to help connect marginalised Palestinian youth from Nablus to the outside world through art and culture.
In Bosnia Firefly continues, after two decades, to bring together youth from diverse ethnic backgrounds through education and art activities, building bridges in a divided region.
Please do like, share and invite your friends to help make this year’s Gala a great success to raise more funds for some really great local partners’ programming for young people growing up in truly challenging conditions.
