Blether Friendship Club
Weekly Mondays, 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th April, 6-8pm
After a visit to the Belfast Friendship Club, we have been inspired to start a similar club in Glasgow: Blether Friendship Club.
The idea of this is simple – to provide a safe space for people of different backgrounds and nationalities to meet each other.
We are a diverse group of people with a lot in common, and so Blether Friendship Club will be a space for people who are new to the city, and people who have always lived here, to:
We come from many walks of life and many countries – including Scotland. Some of us are in work, looking for work or supporting family elsewhere.

If you want to find out more about Blether, why not come along to our first gathering, on Monday 13th February at 6pm at The Project Café, or on any Monday after that.
We’d be grateful if you would advertise this wherever relevant. If you’d like more information, please get in touch – email us at email@example.com or phone Ronnie on 07340866978

We have visited the Belfast Friendship Club and are very grateful for their support of Blether, and for the seven years’ experience they have of running such a club which they are sharing with us as we start something similar – with a tartan slant.
Hope to see you there.
