GATHER IN COMMUNITY SOLIDARITY AFTER THE RALLY
We invite all supporters of Ukraine to come together and unite in community solidarity
for an informal gathering after the Rally and Vigil.
This is an emotional time for all and one where we need to come together to support
one another. As grateful as we may be to be so geographically removed from imminent
danger, the difficulties of feeling helpless and anxious should not be ignored. We are all
feeling the effects of this war in some way.
Varenyky and refreshments will be available for purchase, with all profits going to
humanitarian aid in Ukraine through ukrainecrisisappeal.org
Cafe Trembita is located in North Melbourne at Sts Peter & Paul’s church hall, just above
the childcare centre. Come straight from the rally – varenyky will be served from 4pm.
