LJMU partners with L8 community celebration
On Saturday 25 June staff and students from LJMU will join hundreds of people at Firefit Community Hub in Toxteth for a community celebration
From 10am to 1pm LJMU representatives will be on hand to share support and guidance for anyone thinking of studying at the university in the future. They will join other L8 organisations such as the Somali Women’s Group Liverpool, Liverpool Arabic Centre and Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre as well as others for the three-hour fair.
Then from 1pm to 5pm LJMU will join a host of cultural celebrations that champion the diverse L8 community. There will be food stalls offering a range of cuisine made by Sudanese, Caribbean, Pakistani, Somali, Yemeni, Roma and Irish cooks.
Catherine Shillito, LJMU Student Recruitment and Admissions, said: “Over the past number of years we have worked to create strong links with many L8 organisations and are proud to partner in a community initiative of this scale for the first time. A special thanks to all the faculty and professional service staff who are supporting the event this Saturday and we look forward to continuing the involvement of LJMU colleagues for future activities of this type.”
LJMU works in the L8 community to better support access to Higher Education through student-led sessions, talks and events, as well as tailored admissions, personal statement and student finance support.
