Moving welcome to Edinburgh

It was a privilege to be able to attend a ‘Welcome Refugees’ concert in the stunning St Mary’s Cathedral, Palmerston Place, Edinburgh last night. This was organised by a local Amnesty International group and included an interval performance by the new Welcoming Choir – where newcomers and local sing together. In the horribleness that surrounds us today, we need to come together and remember that we have more in common than different. As a migrant myself, I find it essential to add my voice to those welcoming others to the UK. Thanks to this group of volunteers for such a lovely opportunity to do this.
