Every year on the anniversary of the 1993 Warrington Bomb that killed Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball, we hold our Colours for Peace Day here at the Foundation. We began this event to commemorate 25 years of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation and raise funds for the vital work we do, and will continue to hold it each year to recognise the work that still needs to be done to heal community division in our society.
We are inviting communities, companies, schools, colleges and universities to show your support by wearing your Colours for Peace on Wednesday 20th March 2019. It’s a great opportunity for us all to recognise that we still have so much work to do to build peace in our society, and that we can all be part of making that aspiration a success.
There’s still time to get involved, raise money to help the Foundation’s work and show your commitment to ending the cycle of violence in our society. We work to do this by approaching it in three ways:
Prevention…Working with vulnerable groups and individuals to change behaviours and attitudes, by developing conflict management skills and understanding.
Resolution… Maintaining and restoring sensitive relationships through a process of dialogue with individuals in conflicted and divided communities.
Response… Assistance for those impacted by war, terrorism and violent conflict – creating a network of support and increasing social participation with other survivors.
We hope that everyone will take part by wearing our charity’s colours: green, white or blue (or all three) and make a donation of £1 to help us to continue with our work for peace.
Every £1 raised will help.
Please pass this on to all your contacts – and show your support for Colours for Peace Day.
