As residents of Bevin Court Homeless Hostel we were very disappointed to read D Harrop’s letter.
Accusations that we were bullied into taking part in this cultural event were false.
The diversity day was an open event for all the community, not just the hostel. Perhaps if D Harrop had attended he or she would have experienced a warm welcome in a friendly environment.
Rather than victims of ‘enforced togetherness’ or having to ‘sing for our supper’ we had a very enjoyable day and, as residents, we look forward to the next event.
