Reading Community Cup

A large group of people stood and sat on a football pitch. Some wearing football shirts.

Kindness is fun and The Reading Community Cup proved it!

“The Reading Community Cup was absolutely awesome! So proud to see so many people coming together at the University.

Our aim was to bring people across the local community together and shout loudly about how welcome refugees and sanctuary seekers are in Reading and especially at the University. I think yesterday we took another step in really showing that’s the case.

And congratulations to Giveback United for winning the tournament for the second year in a row! For anyone that doesn’t know their story, they are doing powerful work to combat knife crime in Reading. I recommend you check out their story!”

Thank you to Molli Cleaver who shared this on LinkedIn and kindly sent me the photos to use too.

You can spread some kindness by following the people who made this amazing event happen: Reading Refugee Support Group, Connect Reading, Alice Mpofu-Coles, the John Sykes Foundation, the University of Reading.
