Random Acts of Welcome friendship programme – Phone, or Zoom, or ...

- Community Announcement -

Random Acts of Welcome friendship-programme 'in the middle of the air'.

Would you like to meet someone new, and chat about topics which always interested you / you never heard of? All are invited to take part in making a new friend via phone / Zoom or connecting in other ways, in small groups of 2 or 3's.

The invitation is open-ended until the physical distancing ends, but you are welcome to continue. Resources to provide guidelines, optimise connection while being safe create connections with people across culture / age and gender will be provided, but guided by you.

Learning about others in same or different cultures, maybe with the aid of sharing recipe's or ways of celebrating, or via conversations about language, hobbies or interests may create great avenues to build bridges and provide a focus for celebrations when we can meet face-to-face?

This initiative aims to connect people for 3 conversations only, unless negotiated otherwise?
