[MIHO] Make It Happen Organisation Statement & Thank You Message Regarding The People’s Festival

MIHO would like to say that we are thankful and grateful for the opportunity to put on an event in aid of the Queen’s 90th birthday.  It brought back the days of Street Parties and community togetherness that was once the beating heart of every community in every borough.

We are also proud to announce that we managed to reach a diverse range of event participants as well as event attendees in terms of age, race, religion, sex and culture. To hit the demographic from toddler to mature senior member of the community is pretty challenging, but we are happy to state that we achieved that goal.

This years charity partner was the O’’Bay Community Trust and we as an organisation were proud to fund raise on their behalf.

It was a pleasure and an honour for the Mayoress of Enfield - Bernadette Lappage opening The People’s Festival, her first visit in a diary of a busy schedule of events she was due to visit on Saturday 11th June 2016. 

Thanks to Ponders End Community Development Trust for the partnership working and support, without which the festival would not have happened. 
MIHO would also like to thank Carlito’s Tint’s, AVA Supermarket, Enterprise Enfield, London Borough of Enfield, Lovell and the Alma Residents Assoc' for all the sponsorship they have afforded to this years Festival, DJ’s such as; DJ Omar, DJ Lady Bimma, Tony F, DJ Shocker, Groove Merchant and Mr B.

Also Barclays Bank staff – for all the magnificent volunteers who helped at The People’s Festival, they made a huge difference assisting around the children’s areas which became kept them busy all day, they were all so enthusiastic and helpful, we loved working with them.

I would personally like to thank all the members of our MIHO team Gina Needs, Mark Galloway, Ron and Jon Parkinson, whose hard work all day made the event a success despite any challenges that arose.

On behalf of everyone involved, it was an honour and a pleasure to bring you The People’s Festival this year. We’ll definitely be back next year much bigger, much better and hopefully with more of the individuals who sponsored and supported our event, to prove they do care about our community and all of its participants whether business or residential.

Warmest regards

Omar Lawrence
