Sharing our table with Linda Edwards from the Tenants and Residents Associations (Thurlow Lodge) and Carol ‘Bling’, the special evening was held at the historic Dulwich College, SE21. It was attended by over 300 hundred people, including Diplomatic representatives of embassies from across London joining the Mayor as guests of honour, along with Lord Kennedy of Southwark and Lord Sheikh of Cornhill in the City of London. Guests were treated to diverse cultural food spanning across 5 continents and entertainment from around the world.

Mayor Sunill Chopra said ‘The evening is all about raising some much needed funds for two organisations that are making a vital contribution to the needs of the homeless, and providing an opportunity to celebrate our unity in diversity.

We are very blessed to live in a country with such a rich appreciation of cultural diversity and all that we individually and collectively bring to life in Southwark and the whole of London.”
