A Yoga fundraiser for a school of Syrian refugee children in Kilis.

We are delighted to invite you to our first Yoga fundraiser event in London.
During the event, Papango will specifically raise funds for an informal school located in the town of Kilis, South-Eastern Turkey, on the border with Syria. The school, set up and run by AMAL for Education, gives access to education to over 300 Syrian refugee children, otherwise at risk of being defined as a lost generation.
In light of the common causes shared between Papango and AMAL for Education, a new partnership has begun to support the children of Syria who have escaped war and armed conflict, seeking refuge across the Turkish border.
Saturday 3rd of December, 3:00 pm - 6:45pm.
3:00 -3:30, a welcoming selection of warm herbal teas
3:30 - 4:30, a 60-minute yoga class conducted by our yoga teacher Yoga with Yvonne
4:30 - 4:45, a 15-minute guided relaxation with aromatherapy blends by Yoga and Aromatherapy with Sophia Stirling
5:00 - 5:45, presentation about Papango and its work, with a talk on the experience of refugees and an opportunity to ask questions
5:45 - 6:30, selection of teas, cakes, and relaxation, accompanied by music.
There will also be a stand with charitable items, such as T-Shirts, bags, and photographs available for purchase. All proceeds will go towards supporting the education of the children from the school in Kilis.
If you would rather come after the yoga class, you are welcome to join us at 4:45 pm for the rest of the event.
Minimum suggested donation with yoga: £25.00
IMPORTANT: there are 28 limited spaces for the yoga class so please make sure you book your space ahead of time here on Eventbrite and send your £25+ donation via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your space. The amount is a suggestion and you're welcome to contribute as much as you think is fair and affordable for you. We will also collect donations anonymously on the day.
All of the donations collected on this date will go towards supporting the education offered by the school in Kilis, the children and their teachers.
We would be enthusiastic to have you join our first London event, and we thank all of you who will be able to make it on this day!
