A community meal, organised by Platforma Arts with U Zambezi group performing in aid of Kent Refugee Action Network was greeted with a spectacular rainbow appearing over Folkestone's East Cliff.


 

The event was held on the former platform at Folkestone Harbour Station, beside the Harbour Arm, where nearly a hundred people gathered to share a meal, raise funds for KRAN, and be entertained by the U Zambezi Arts group from Faversham.
