Getting botanical for charity
SAFS 30th Anniversary Gala is a fragrant success
A registered Midlands charity - Sandwell Asian Family Support Service (SAFS) - held a fabulous 30th Anniversary Gala at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on 4th June to commemorate three decades of their wonderful work.
Since it opened its doors in 1986, SAFS has cared for hundreds of South Asian disabled people every year, in addition to providing a valuable service to maintain the health and wellbeing of parents and carers.
The floral event was attended by 300 people, with honourable guests - Satnam Rana and Sukhi Bart - leading the night, alongside entertainment, ranging from a steel-pan artist to magicians, photo booths and DJs.
Meanwhile, the highlight for many in attendance was a special performance by a group of adults who attend SAFS Lifestyle service.
The Gala was attended by SAFS families, friends, supporters and representatives from the health and social care, corporate and government sectors.
Speaking about the charity’s work, CEO, Parpinder Dhatt, said: “It’s been a remarkable 30 years for SAFS.
“We have helped ease the lives of hundreds of South Asian disabled people and their families and our 30th Anniversary Gala was our opportunity to celebrate our achievements and pay tribute to these amazing people.”
She continued: “We hope with the generous support from the community, organisations, local business’ and SAFS staff team that we are able to provide and develop our invaluable services to the local community for another 30 years.”
Over the last 30 years, SAFS has worked to enrich the lives of hundreds of local individuals and families. Trained and qualified staff have worked tirelessly to enrich the lives and experiences of all of the children, young people and adults who use their services.
All the proceeds from the 30th anniversary event went towards supporting people living with a disability and their families.
