Celebrating diversity and achievement at the 11th BB Awards 2014 (2)

As a patron, I was invited to the 11th annual BBI Awards on Saturday. The awards ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Southwark, the Deputy Leader of the Council as well as other local leaders and community champions.

The BBI Awards were launched in 2004 to promote and celebrate diversity and achievement amongst our mixed community; showcasing individuals. businesses and enterprises both at home and abroad.

I was honoured to present the International Business Award to Abbey Paseda for his work on Focus on Disability UK. I send my congratulations to Abbey!

All of the guests enjoyed the evening which included wonderful Caribbean and Nigerian food, as well as a host of talented singers and dancers from the area.

Thank you to Sunny Lambe for organising and hosting the event!
