Councillor Terry Wheeler, Mayor of Waltham Forest 2014/15, writes:
One of the things I do as Mayor is to help raise funds for Charity. I have chosen this year to focus on projects for local young people and to focus on young people.
I am writing to to invite you to support a Garden Party on 31st August (from 4.00-7.00pm) being held at my Home to raise funds for the Soul Project who are based in Wood Street and whose main aim is to “engage young people throughout the Borough in positive activities to prevent social exclusion”
The event is being hosted by the Young Mayoress Karishma Mahomed who has chosen the Soul Project as the focus for this event- I will be helping the Borough Youth Engagement Team in the kitchen.
The Garden Party will feature “Jazz Atmosphere”- a locally based Jazz Trio –there will be opportunities for anyone who wishes to sit in”
It is a fund raising event so there will be a charge of £20 (£12 concessions) and children will be free ( but appropriate donations would be welcome). In return you will be able to enjoy Jazz- themed Music provided by Jazz Atmosphere, a substantial buffet meal, a glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage and a tour round the garden. You are welcome to bring your own refreshment supplies as well. All meat used will be Halal unless otherwise indicated and there will be vegetarian options.
We obviously need to know who is coming to ensure there is adequate catering and to manage numbers- we do not want to annoy our neighbours, and the Jazz Band will moderate their sound levels. Please “hassle me”:
Phone - 020 8496 4399 (ask for Mariam Ifzal).
