On Wednesday 2nd June, Kim Strickson (project director) and Mashuda Shaikh (advisor to 6 million Charitable Trust) attended a tea party hosted by Dr John Semantu, Archbishop of York, at Bishopthorpe Palace in York.
The Most Reverend John Semantu has recently become a patron of the Trust and supports the initiative to raise over a million pounds to create a memorial dedicated to the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, as well as an education programme dedicated to examining the situations that lead to genocide and challenging discrimination of any kind. Both of these will be based at Huddersfield University and will work in partnership with the Holocaust Learning Centre being created by the Holocaust Survivors friendship Association.
The event in York was an opportunity for the 6 million+ reps to meet with people from other charities in Yorkshire and tell Dr John Semantu more about the work of the Trust.
6 million+ Trust will be organising activities and an event for Holocaust Memorial Day in Huddersfield for January 2016 with the blessing of Kirklees Council who are no longer leading on the event.
