A Year of Welcome Calendar






Team Fundraisers

 Year of Welcome Calendar

The Year of Welcome Calendar has been created by Swindon City of Sanctuary and Bekah Grace Illustration. Quite simply, it’s a calendar highlighting global events, with local impact, which reflect and promote Swindon City of Sanctuary’s values around welcome and inclusion.

The calendar is a reminder of the year-long importance of welcome – that it be embedded into the daily lives of all of us in our community.

Emerging from this came the idea to create a calendar to highlight global events with local impact, that reflect and promote Swindon City of Sanctuary’s values around welcome and inclusion. 

You can order and buy* your own A2 glossy printed copy of the Year of Welcome Calendar here!
