The story so far

I PACKED THIS MYSELF started as a project working with migrant workers and local communities in Cornwall. We found instances of exploitation, discrimination and outright racism and tried to find ways of bringing people together to increase understanding. We've run workshops across Cornwall in schools and with other groups. We're now taking this work forward by looking at unemployment in rural communities.

Meeting at Pool School, assembly at Richard Lander, then back to Camborne

An early morning meeting at Pool School with Ola Paluch (just arrived back in Cornwall after Easter in Krakow. A 33-hour trip by bus and train. She was due to fly on Saturday but her flight was cancelled because of the ash cloud). A cold morning but the palm trees look tropical. We plan a day-long workshop in May for migrant worker children in the school
Then a lunchtime assembly at Richard Lander School, Truro. Our third this week.
Ewa preparing...
And then back to Camborne to meet Andrew Yates, Social Responsibility Officer for the Diocese of Truro. He borrowed the suitcases for a workshop yesterday in Falmouth with industrial chaplains. A quick handover in the car park of the Elim Centre.
