Diwali needs input from public to ensure success
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.
