The Mayor of Harrow was entertained with dancers & dhol drummers. The Mayor was welcomed by the Sri Lankan Community where he was garlanded and the Mayoress was handed a flower basket.
They sang the British National Anthem and the Mayor gave a speech. A traditional Sri Lankan feast and a raffle were enjoyed by all.
The Mayor of Harrow, Councillor Nizam Ismail, said: “I’m so pleased that so many people from all communities came together to help raise money at the fundraiser. Age UK Harrow aims to improve later life for everyone and offers fantastic information and advice, so it really is a very worthy cause.”
