We were joined on the evening by a variety of speakers including the Council Leader Cllr Jack hopkins, Green party Cllr Rebecca Thackray, the Metropolitan Police Service, the local army and faith leaders. In september 2019, Chair of the Board Joseph Mbang, the Mayor of Lambeth Ibrahim dogus once again hosted Ash-Shahada and its partners at the Mayor’s parlour.

The Eid reception was attended by Helen Hayes MP, Speaker of Hackney Council Cllr Kam Adams, Supt. Ian Howells of the MPS, Major Daniel Staples of the 253 London Provost Company, local community leaders, faith leaders, ASHA tenants and more. Our tenants and the community thoroughly enjoyed the events we arranged and we hope to arrange more soon!

Lambeth is home, to one of the most unique communities in the world, and it gives me great pride, to continue our borough’s fine tradition of opening our doors and celebrating our diversity. It is wonderful, but therefore not at all surprising, to see so many different communities, represented here tonight.” – Mayor Ibrahim Dogus 

“My friendship goes back almost 20 years and I am so pleased we can be here tonight. this is a fantastic initiative to bring our diverse communities together. the organisations here today have been working so hard to keep our communities together and we come together in good times and in bad times… thank you so much and I hope you keep on going!” – Council Leader Cllr Jack Hopkins
