My co-Councillor in Dudden Hill Ward, Cllr Aslam Choudry is the new Mayor of Brent. He is a great guy and I’m sure he will have a very successful year serving as the Mayor of Brent.
His two chosen charities that he will be fundraising for over the year are the Central Mosque of Brent and Brent Mind.
Outgoing Mayor of Brent, Cllr Harbhajan Singh raised £30,000 for his three chosen charities, Asian People’s Disability Alliance, St Luke’s Hospice and Shooting Stars.
The Brent Summer University (BSU) provides young people in Brent with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of workshops and classes over the school summer holidays.
Last night I attended the BSU Showcase event where young people performed in front of hundreds on stage. Performances included Tae Kwon Do, Singing and Dancing. Also present was Mayor Harbhajan Singh.
I was truly dazzled by the performances and delighted that I represent a Borough with such a vast array of talent.
