In Trafford a local artist, Jenny Bent, has developed an art workshop for Syrian refugee children having seen all the horrible footage on TV. Miss Bent wanted to make an impact in the children’s lives since they already had a traumatic childhood and might be separated from parents, relatives and their hometown. To give them a little hope, she organised a workshop making masks, painting wood and decorating wind chimes. The 30 Syrian children enjoyed the afternoon a lot and Miss Bent states she is happy that she was able to see so many smiling faces.
