“Easter Community Baskets

– learn with us Polish traditions”

Polish Klan Association is inviting you to take part in our project “Easter Community Baskets – learn with us Polish Traditions”.

This project is mainly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and partly by the Polish Embassy in London.

Easter Community Baskets are packages of polish traditional items, creative art material, leaflets explaining and describing Polish traditions but also chocolate eggs and bunnies. The baskets will contain a wide range of Easter arts and crafts to immerse themselves in, in the comfort of their own home. Play and creative arts are well-known outlets for supporting emotional health in children but also for adults. The resources are of an educational and fun nature to ignite enthusiasm, creativity and innovative ideas and to discover the polish tradition, and therefore bring communities together.

We will deliver 60 baskets to residents in the London Borough of Hounslow and a further 40 to residents of surrounding areas which will be delivered or collected on 27th March 2021.

These parcels will be gifted to single parents, vulnerable individuals and families who are struggling through these difficult times. The families may be using food banks, maybe under financial stress, and may have lost a loved one to the virus or their existing condition heightened due to the anxiety levels around or change in routine.

Polish Klan Association jointly with Poland Street Organisation, Mazury Dance Company of Polish YMCA and Polish Community School JP II invite all communities to participate in our zoom workshop to discover Polish Easter traditions on 28th March 2021 at 3 pm.

The live workshop will give you a brilliant opportunity to learn more about Polish culture and how Poles celebrate Easter. Easter is a joyous and fun-filled time and we would love you to join us in trying a range of various crafts and activities.

* Poland Street Organisation will deliver an Easter Eggs decorating workshop and a competition with prizes for children.

* Polish Klan Association & Polish Community School John Paul II will tell you about the history and meaning of Polish traditions.

* Mazury Dance Co. will present fun folklore activities & Easter traditions.

Our project is about getting close to the local community. The aim is to promote and celebrate Polish culture and the tradition of Easter celebration. We believe that a wider range of local people will be involved in our project and this will give them a better understanding of Polish culture.
