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".
