HANA NEWSLETTER FOR MAY 2014

 

 

MESSAGE FROM CHIEF OFFICER

 I am proud to present the first number of the HANA Newsletter which brings to you news about recent events and information on forthcoming activities. The first quarter of the year was very busy for HANA with an unprecedented level of partnership work and the delivery of events across the City of Hull.

I would like also to welcome you to our new offices. We have been fortunate to be able to buy a property to house HANA’s offices, events and activities and, as most of you know, we are working now from 44 Portland Street HU2 8JX. This is a great building that is open to all communities and which acts as a point of contact and interaction for people of all communities. If you have not visited us yet in the new building, I would like to invite you to pop in and see what HANA has to offer to your community and its members.

This first issue of our Newsletters includes also photographs of the very successful HANA World Cup of Football 2014 which took place earlier on 25 May at the KC Stadium. I hope you enjoy the newsletter and have a great Summer.

THE HANA FOOTBALL WORLD CUP 2014

2014, a FIFA World Cup year again after four long years of waiting!  No other sporting event captures the world’s imagination like the FIFA World Cup when the whole world unites and comes together.  This year’s World Cup is in Brazil, land of Samba and the cradle of the world’s many great footballers.  They say football born in England but grow and mature in Brazil!  The football euphoria has also arrived to HANA again!

HANA organised its annual Football World Cup, just weeks before the actual World Cup in Brazil, on 25th May 2014, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm at KC Stadium, the Circle, Anlaby Road, Hull.

There were 29 teams participating in the tournament from different nationalities and ethnic group living in Hull and The Humber region.  The previous HANA World Cups were huge successes and great examples of community cohesion and togetherness, this year’s tournament was even better!

CHINESE CULTURE EVENT TO CELEBRATE HON LOK SENIOR ASSOCIATION

At the OCTAGON

WALKER STREET

HULL  HU3 2RA

From 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm

 

Different ethnic groups will play a part in the celebrations .

If you are interested in this colourful, musical, exciting event, please contact HANA nearer the time for more information.

 

 

HANA’ s primary aim is to promote the well being of BME communities in the Hull and East Riding Area by providing a voice and advocate on their behalf, and by representing their interests in the range of influential or decision-making contexts.  This role is supported by capacity-building amongst BME groups, signposting and referral on the one hand and engagement with partnership bodies on the other.

We aim to be of service to BME communities by facilitating consultation and feedback on issues which affect them and by conducting research into subjects which concern them, and particularly into local service provision to identify obstacles which may make take-up difficult for BME people.
