Sincere thanks to Kasmir Youth Project from Rochdale Foodbank for their donation of £401.75 following the fantastic evening in the town hall celebrating the contributions of so many involved in the Rochdale Diversity Awards 2017.
Zulf Ahmed, CEO of the Kashmir Youth Project, said: “Diversity emanates from this Great Hall in front of me and Rochdale continues to lead the way when it comes to equality and diversity.
“This is the sixth year of the Rochdale Diversity Awards and tonight we see and hear of examples of good practice from across all sections of the community, from private, public and voluntary organisations, from individuals, groups and partnerships. These are the things that make me proud to be Rochdalian.
“We should all challenge the negative portrayal of Rochdale and celebrate all that is good in the borough, after all, we have many things to be proud of and everyone in this room should have one aim, to work together in co-operation for the harmony and prosperity of the residents and community of Rochdale.”
