The ‘Dine at Mine’ initiative has been thought-up and organised by friends Abid Hussain and Rebecca Hickman with the simple aim of bringing together people of different backgrounds, creeds and colours, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to meet each other.
Rebecca Hickman said:
‘We wanted to create an opportunity for people to spend time with those who they may not otherwise get to know in the course of their day-to-day lives. We hope that each dinner party will create a space where we can meet each other and learn about each other as individuals and fellow human beings.’Abid Hussain said:
‘These dinner parties will enable people from diverse backgrounds to realise how much unites us – whether it’s our common values and hopes, or our frustration at the dismal performance of our local football team! In this informal way, we hope that understanding and friendships can be built across our community, contributing to all our efforts to promote harmony and mutual respect in our town.’
