A Bollywood-themed St Valentines Day event in aid of DRWF in Birmingham raised £1,000 for the charity.

Bollywood singer Jas Wouhra headed up the musical lineup with the release of the video for his latest single, 'Dil Nu Peeda De Gaya,' at South and City College in February.

The event was hosted by East End Foods and included food, song and dance which was enjoyed immensely by all who attended.

DRWF wishes to say a huge thanks to East End Foods for their generous donation of £1,000.

Karen Scott, DRWF Community Fundraiser, said: “We were delighted to be chosen as the charity to benefit from this Valentines Day event. A colourful and lively evening attended by approximately 300 fabulous people.

“There were some amazing dancers, beautiful sari dresses, tasty food and romantic music, all hosted by Jas Wouhra. The other artists performing on the night were Reema Chavda, Sazia Judge, Sonu Chand, Sumitra, Parijat De and Echo International.”

Dr Parijat De and his colleagues from Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust are contributors to the DRWF Diabetes Wellness Day Midlands, facilitating some great sessions at this growing event.

Karen added: “This was a very successful event for DRWF as we managed to speak with many people there who told us how diabetes affected their lives. We are looking forward to keeping in touch with some of them through our Diabetes Wellness Day Midlands. East End Foods plc presented DRWF with a cheque of £,1000. With no government funding, this donation will help the charity to continue to hold these awareness days for the local community.
