On the 11th September, members from the HPW team attended the British Keralites Association Onam Celebration at Featherstone High School in Southall, as HPW was one of the sponsors of the event.
The event was very well attended with over 500 people sharing the traditional meal and a cultural show including the traditional welcoming of Mahabali, the mythical ruler in whose reign every one was equal and people had peace and prosperity. The Harvest festival is celebrating these values in the guise of a celebration put up to welcome the mythical king who visits his subjects every year during this time.
It is the first time the firm has supported an event by the Association and it was a fantastic opportunity to become involved with the community and experience the values upheld by their culture.
Peter Augustine of HPW who attended the event said, “ the event was brilliant and we are delighted to be associating with this extremely vibrant community here in the UK and to be able to offer our services to the community. ”
