We would like to say a huge thank you to Natalia Whiteside, who organised another A Piece for Peace fundraiser at St Luke’s Prestonville in Brighton last Sunday. Bettering last year’s success, the day raised more than £1,000 over a coffee morning with homemade cakes and an auction of beautiful local artwork.

Natalia gathered 15 artists, 8 bakers and Peace Direct’s very own Head of Programmes, Tom Gillhespy, while Same Batch kindly donated their delicious coffee. An impressive 27 pieces of art were sold in addition to countless pieces of cake!
