Friends of the Caribbean, a local charity in Milton Keynes, has achieved recognition from the Milton Keynes Rose Trust through the inscription of a pillar to celebrate the contribution of the Windrush Generation at the MK Rose, in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes.
A Windrush Cricket Family Fun Day took place earlier in the month to raise funds for the pillar.
The unveiling of the Windrush pillar takes place on Wednesday, June 22 at 6pm at The Milton Keynes Rose, Campbell Park. Special Guests will include Jamaican High Commissioner His Excellency Mr Seth George Romocan CD, Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin MBE QHC, representatives from the Home Office, the Mayor of Milton Keynes and the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire. There will be a live music performance by MK Youth Orchestra.
Chairman of Friends of the Caribbean, Wain McIntosh MBE, said, “We are proud to host and share this memorable occasion with the Milton Keynes community and I am encouraged by requests for the Cricket Family Fun Day to be an annual event. It promises to be a wonderful celebration.”
