Cupcakes and Cast-Off’s at Cathays Community Centre

On Saturday 4th June, WSSAG will be attending the Cupcakes and Cast-off’s event at Cathays Community Centre from 12-4pm. For a map of how to get there click here.

This free event will be a great opportunity to find some bargains and enjoy great food and live music!

Think bunting, balloons, music, face-painting, fun in the sun, kids activities, craftiness and of course ample quantities of the sweet, gooey, chocolatey – or other types of tasty – goodness that is CAKE! And of course clothes and other pre-loved goodies will be on sale for the cheapest prices around. Cupcakes & Cast-off’s is all about reducing, recycling, revamping & re-wearing!

Raising money for Asylum Justice, Environmental Justice Foundation and STAR (Student Action for Refugees).

Asylum Justice is a local charity that supports asylum seekers who don’t have a lawyer in Cardiff and Swansea by providing them with free legal aid. Many of these cases have been refused by lawyers and so the work of Asylum Justice – run by volunteers – is invaluable.

Environmental Justice Foundation (EJS) makes the link between the need for environmental security and the defence of basic human rights. One of EJS’ campaigns is on Climate Refugees. Deteriorating environmental conditions linked to climate change are already affecting the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. However, there is no legally binding agreement identifying and protecting climate refugees so EJS is working to establish one.

STAR Cardiff runs a weekly drop-in centre for asylum seekers and refugees, is involved in campaigns, improving awareness about refugee issues, and fund-raising for charities such as the Welsh Refugee Council. STAR Network is made up of hundreds of other STAR groups around the UK, all who are supported by a small head office through training and resources. Due to cuts in funding, raising money for the network is vital.
