Rosslyn Hill Chapel, Hampstead, London
The Dialogue Society was invited to an Awards ceremony organized by Rosslyn Hill Unitarian Chapel in Hampstead, where it was presented with a cheque to fund its ongoing projects. The money was raised by the Chapels own congregation to support the work carried out by the Dialogue Society, which they believed was very important in establishing bridges between different communities.
Jim Robinson, leader of the Chapel, commented on the positive work that had been carried out and his first hand experiences with the Dialogue Society. He expressed his desire to continue in partnership with the Dialogue Society and lay the foundations for new projects. Mrs Ilknur Kahraman from the Dialogue Society briefed the audience about ongoing and future projects and accepted the kind donation on behalf of the Society.
One other organization was also presented with an award and the audience, were entertained by a live musician playing traditional Lebanese songs on a string instrument (the Ud), as well as listening to the beautiful singing of one of the Chapel's choir members. The programme ended with refreshments and the opportunity to network between the various communities present.
