Café Culture – Arabian Nights!
It was great to see so many of you at the Arab Cafe Culture last
Tuesday. About 150 people came and LOADS of yummy middle eastern
food was donated to us by local Arab restaurants and shops: Al-Salam,
Al-Shami, Tarboush, Falafel House and Zenobia grocers. Many thanks
to all of them.
The night raised a grand total of £1,343.32 for Medical
Aid for Palestinians (MAP), much of which came from personal contributions
throughout the night, so many thanks to all those anonymous givers
The next Cafe Culture will feature the INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT,
taking place early in Hilary term. For
those interested in getting involved and helping organise the
night (the more the merrier, and no you don't have to be a native!),
there will be a planning meeting TUESDAY 8TH WEEK, 8PM WADHAM
COLLEGE SEMINAR ROOM (signposted in college). Other Indian-related
societies will also attend the meeting, so hopefully it will be
a really big joint society event.
Hope to see many of you there, and thanks once again for supporting
Baha'i Soc's Cafe Culture evenings.
Meanwhile, have a great rest of term and enjoy the Christmas hols.
(Baha'i Soc President)

A live Brazillian band performed from 8.30-9pm, playing guitar,
drum & regional instruments and singing harmonies, which was
excellent. Two demonstrations of Salsa dancing were very popular,
and a few people got up to dance.
Around 80 students enjoyed the festivities
Just over £200 was raised for the orphanage. Some people
have since expressed a wish to donate money and this will be added
to the total.
Information on the Tierra Santa Orphanage in Honduras was displayed
on a board, and encapsulated photos featuring different aspects
of the orphanage and the children were displayed around the room.
