October has now come and gone very quickly it seems, and during this month at QVT we celebrated Black History Month with our clients.
Whilst it is something that we would celebrate anyway, we consider it especially important to get involved as we have a great many clients at our schemes who are from the black and ethnic minority communities, although our clients from all ethnicities really enjoyed the celebration events that we put on, thanks to our staff and volunteers.
These included one of our volunteers kindly cooking our clients a healthy meal of tasty Tanzanian chicken and rice, followed by African Coconut Chin Chins (a great first introduction to delicious African cuisine for some our staff and clients!).
We also held coffee mornings at our Croydon schemes, and enjoyed amazing ‘Black History Month’ cupcakes from London-based cake company ‘Funfetti London’ – they really were quite something! Very much enjoyed by everyone who took part.
