HAFSA and THE JAFFA ORANGE – Autumn 2020

Please see here the current schedule of HAFSA fund-raising events  and join us if you can:

  • Saturday 6th February : 3pm  HAFSA Annual General Meeting.   This meeting will be on Zoom.   If you would like to attend and are not already on our HAFSA mailing list  please contact us
  • Saturday 27th February   : 5 pm   We are very much hoping to be able to show the informative and moving film by Eyal Sivan  Jaffa, the Orange’s Clockwork via Zoom with a discussion to follow.  This is particularly relevant given our current HAFSA project started in late 2020 to enable the planting of 300 orange trees in and around Sabastiya.
  •  Saturday 6th March  :   British Palestine  Friendship and Twinning Network AGM More details to follow.
  •  Sunday 14th March  : 11 am -2 pm  HAFSA stall at Brentford Market Come and see us at this lively monthly market in Market Place, Brentford.   We are hoping that restrictions will be lifted so that again we can be fund-raising at this lively local market.  HAFSA will be selling  Palestinian Zaytoun products, “Gift an Orange Tree” cards  and greeting cards, 100% cotton traditional black and white or coloured keffiyehs made in Hebron, handmade  purses, phone cases with traditional Palestinian embroidery and our new booklet celebrating 10 years of HAFSA – as well as bric-a-brac and more!  Please wear a mask while browsing the stalls – Sunday parking nearby is easy and there are good bus routes. We  thank the many people who supported us so generously at the Christmas market    – and are delighted now to be able to take  both contactless payment and  cash for cash and donations.

We welcome any good quality items to sell on our stall and you can drop them at Marjorie’s (details below).  Can you help on the day?  Contact  Marjorie: [email protected]  07960 804650
