THE charity set up in the wake of the 1993 IRA bombing of Warrington is to hold its second Colours for Peace Day.

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation launched the event last year, at the 25th anniversary to raise funds for the vital work they do.

And it returns next week on the day Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball were killed in Warrington town centre.

The foundation is inviting communities, companies, schools, colleges and universities to show support by wearing Colours for Peace on Wednesday, March 20.

Caroline Finch-Denham, director of marketing at the Great Sankey-based charity, said: "It’s a great opportunity for us all to recognise that we still have so much work to do to build peace in our society, and that we can all be part of making that aspiration a success.

"There’s still time to get involved, raise money to help the foundation’s work and show your commitment to ending the cycle of violence in our society.

"We work to do this by approaching it in three ways: prevention; working with vulnerable groups and individuals to change behaviours and attitudes, by developing conflict management skills and understanding.

"Resolution; maintaining and restoring sensitive relationships through a process of dialogue with individuals in conflicted and divided communities.

"Response; assistance for those impacted by war, terrorism and violent conflict – creating a network of support and increasing social participation with other survivors."

The charity hopes that everyone will take part by wearing the foundation's colours: green, white or blue, or all three, and make a donation of £1 to help the charity continue their work for peace.
