To raise funds to enable us continue to publish our free community magazine aimed at promoting diversity and cultural understanding. B-Me Voices magazine was started as a pilot a year ago funded by the Big Lottery Awards For All. While Norfolk is becoming more diverse, there is little or no opportunity to engage, understand and known about the people that make up its diverse cultures.
Since its inception, B-Me Voices magazine served as a safe platform for sharing the views, cultures and positive stories and experienced of black and minority people living in Norfolk. It helps to break down barriers, foster positive community relationships and give a voice to the minority community.
Why you should help
For the first time the voice of minority communities in Norfolk are been heard in a format that is accessible to all residents of Norfolk. It a source for information, news and inspiring stories about ordinary people. The magazine has been made available at all the 47 libraries in Norfolk, in schools, NHS offices and at high street shops in Norwich. The magazine is also available free online. It is distributed at community events and at several charity organisation offices.
Each £2 contributed will enable us make a copy of the magazine available to someone or yourself in the community. We need to be able to raise enough to cover the cost of designing and printing at least 1000 copies to make it viable, which means we need to raise £2000 per issue.
