a cocktail of community, chess, summer tomatoes and a dash of Yiddish
The past weeks have been as busy as ever at The Together Plan. Our Youth for Youth Movement is blooming, with a busy buzz of communication and planning across borders. We do love virtual technology! For us everything is about community and this month we bring you a brilliant story about the north London business community, keeping the wider community safe whilst supporting The Together Plan’s charity community work! We bring you up to speed with news of our international youth group and their activities in the virtual world. We delve into the world of Belarusian chess players, and we explore the Yiddishists of the past. If Yiddish is your thing, join us on July 5th for an exciting online event (details below).
All the best and stay safe,
The Together Plan Team
