Di­wali needs in­put from pub­lic to en­sure suc­cess

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Your help is needed to en­sure Mt Roskill Di­wali en­joys a sec­ond year.

Puke­ta­papa Lo­cal Board mem­ber Ella Ku­mar worked with the com­mu­nity and schools to start the event last year.

‘‘Many In­dian com­mu­ni­ties have their own cel­e­bra­tion events but a Di­wali event for ev­ery­one is needed to help com­mu­ni­ties un­der­stand each other and their cul­tures,’’ she says.

The funds that were raised at last year’s event went to­wards the Mt Roskill wa­ter base hockey turf project.

This year Di­wali in Puke­ta­papa will be cel­e­brated on Oc­to­ber 17.
