Dear Readers,

You will find a lot of Black & Asian news stories if you go to Twitter @blackeresources. If you are not familiar with Twitter, kindly follow the weblink below to access the news stories via Twitter:

(Please scroll down the Twitter feed and just click on the image or relevant link to access the full version of the news stories you wish to read).

Although I have highlighted a few news stories below, it is always difficult to choose news items that you may want to read, as it depends on your interests (e.g. culture, media, work, health, sport etc.), so I hope you will still have a quick look at my Twitter account!

Black Europe Resources is in a development phase and hopes to be able to offer digital donation and/or payment options soon.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you already wish to discuss potential sponsorship deals (organisations/people with verifiable business credentials and website preferably), thank you.

Keep Well & Stay Safe,
