Afternoon Tea with the Mayor of Warrington   The Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Karen Mundry will host another event next Wednesday 15th August to raise money for her chosen charities this year, including the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation. The afternoon will be hosted at the Village Hotel, Centre Park, Warrington, from 2pm till 4pm and everybody is welcome. Tickets are £12.50 per person and includes: Selection of sandwiches Scones with jam and fresh cream Selection of mini cakes Tea and coffee In January this year, the Peace Foundation launched its UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT Campaign to mark the 25th Anniversary of the IRA bombing in Warrington, which tragically claimed the lives of 12-year-old Tim Parry and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball. Speaking at Tim’s funeral, Colin said ‘If my son becomes a symbol for peace and gives everyone a new sense of hope after so much tragedy, then that will be Tim’s unique achievement’. Little did we know at that time that Colin’s words would come true. About us As a measure of the scale and reach of our work, the Foundation is supporting over 800 survivors and their families from the Manchester Arena and London attacks last year. Add to these appalling events, the killing of tourists on a Tunisian beach and those injured at Paris Bataclan concert, and you can see how widely our ‘Survivors Assistance Network’ operates. We provide free, practical and emotional support to anyone living in the UK who has been affected by a terrorist incident in the UK or overseas. Indeed, since the Manchester attack, we are now supporting children as young as 7, as well as their parents, to help them cope and recover. Our support is available for as long as the individual needs it, and many victims have told us that, without it, they would have received no intervention at all. Despite our help being called upon more than ever before, we have received no additional funding and so we are relying on the generosity of third party funders to help us maintain our service. All proceeds in support of The Mayor’s Charity Appeal 2018/19: The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation Warrington Disability Partnership, together with other smaller charities. Tickets can be bought on the Warrington Borough Council website by clicking here Cllr Karen has chosen the Peace Foundation as one of her charities this year due to the 2018 being our 25th Anniversary year and she has already started raising money for us through a "Night at the Musicals".

Women for Peace: Learning from Northern Ireland 7pm, Thursday 8th March 2018 (Audience & panel discussion followed by drinks reception) Eleanor Rathbone Hall, Blackburne House, Blackburne Place, Liverpool, L8 7PE  The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation invites you to attend Women for Peace: Learning from Northern Ireland, an event celebrating International Women’s Day 2018 and the work of the Peace Foundation’s Women for Peace education programme which trains and supports women to become more democratically engaged, active citizens, leading the way in preventing and resolving community and family conflict. To date, we have worked with over 200 women across the North of England. This is a panel discussion followed by audience Q&A and networking drinks. The panel consists of leading female peace campaigners from around the world. Please note - this is a free event but places are limited, so please reserve your place by booking at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/women-for-peace-learning-from-northern-ireland-tickets-41302735594  Ana Victoria Bastidas - Truth, Memory and Reconciliation Commission of Colombian Women in the Diaspora   Ana Victoria first arrived in the UK 21 years ago. She came to give continuity to the theology course with the Youth with a Mission. After a period, Vicky’s invitation to be the Head Teacher of a missionary school in West London came through, which she stayed for the next 10 years. Her work with the Missionary school ended in 2008 so Vicky started to attend the Church of England. Once again, she felt that God was calling her to start something new. In July 2017, Vicky was ordained at St Paul’s Cathedral as the first Afro-Colombian Priest. That was a moment of much joy and honour. Back in 1990 Vicky graduated becoming Doctor in Bacteriology. After that, Vicky went to the Amazon Forest as a volunteer working with Youth with a Mission until 1996. In January 2015, the consul of Colombia invited Vicky to meet with the Colombian group of women working in pro of the peace in Colombia, Truth Memory and Reconciliation Commission of Colombian Women in the Diaspora. That was a very emotional moment for Vicky for she knew that was a massive door opening for her, somehow getting in touch with her roots again would give Vicky the opportunity to try to forgive; maybe forget the painful past lived in her beloved Colombia. Margaret Bateson - Chief Executive of the Victims and Survivors Service Margaret Bateson has been the Chief Executive of the Victims and Survivors Service (VSS) in Northern Ireland since July 2014, providing a range of holistic support and services to victims and survivors of ‘the troubles’ in areas including health and wellbeing, social support, truth and justice.  Margaret has led the VSS through a period of change over the last number of years towards an individual needs based approach, acknowledging the experience and needs of each victim and survivor is unique and valued.   This year, support and services to victims and survivors were expanded across the GB and Ireland. Margaret has just returned from Colombia, where she shared the Northern...

THE LAUNCH OF OUR UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT CAMPAIGN 2018

The Peace Foundation is launching its UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT Campaign to mark the 25th Anniversary of the IRA bombing in Warrington, which tragically claimed the lives of 12-year-old Tim Parry and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball. Speaking at Tim’s funeral, Colin said ‘If my son becomes a symbol for peace and gives everyone a new sense of hope after so much tragedy, then that will be Tim’s unique achievement’. Little did we know at that time that Colin’s words would come true. The Foundation, which was established and named in memory of Tim and Johnathan, has become the leading UK provider of support to victims of terrorism and to young people and communities whose lives are affected by extremism and conflict. Collectively, the lives of all these people have been improved through the support programmes we have developed by using the knowledge and expertise we have gained over the years. At 12.27pm on Tuesday 20th March 1993, the IRA’s bomb attack on Warrington changed the lives of so many forever. Now, 25 years on, we are urging schools, colleges, individuals and businesses to remember Tim & Johnathan by joining us in raising £150,000 to help us continue our vitally important work in 2018. Wendy Parry said: “It’s so hard to think that 25 years have passed since the Warrington bombing, and even harder to think that it’s so long since we have spoken to, or held our son Tim.” “On Tuesday 20th March, there will be a commemorative service in Warrington town centre to remember Tim, Johnathan and the many other victims who were injured or affected by that terrible day. We are also asking companies, schools and individuals to join our ‘Colours for Peace’ Fundraising event which takes place on the same day. This will take the form of a ‘Dress Down Day’ when we ask that you wear the Foundation’s colours of blue, green or white, or all 3, and donate a £1.00 to the Foundation. Make this your way of supporting the Foundation but also your way of remembering two young boys who had so much to live for.” (If you wish to take part in Colours for Peace, please contact Wendy or Kate) If you would like to support our Unique Achievement Campaign and Colours for Peace during 2018 please contact: Kate Deakin – Relationship Manager on 01925 581210 or kate.deakin@foundation4peace.org Or Wendy Parry – Event Manager on 01925 581234 or wendy.parry@foundation4peace.org “If my son becomes a symbol for Peace, and gives everyone a new sense of hope after so much tragedy, then that will be Tim’s Unique Achievement”
