On 12 July, Srebrenica Memorial Day was held at Blackburn Cathedral as a remembrance of Srebrenica genocide. Chris Seddon was the chair of the event while The Rev Canon Dr Rowena Pailing welcomed the guests.

Three representatives (a woman from Afghanistan, a man from Ivory Coast, and a girl from Sudan) of the City of Sanctuary (YMCA) spoke about their journeys. Few other members from the refugee community were also present there.

At the end, Interfaith Forum representative Derek Estill read Srebrenica Prayer in first instance and then invited audience to stand and repeat the prayer as a group. (News and Photo by Aftab Alexander Mughal)
