The winner of the competition Bob Bedwell received £50 Bluewater voucher donated by P L Mulligans Family Funeral Directors.

Yet again Bexley Interfaith Forum social event was a tremendous opportunity for people of all different religions and faith traditions to celebrate our diversity and come together socially to build relationships and engage with each other but also to work together on a social action project which was fundraising for the Mayor’s of Bexley charities.
It is important that we cooperate because through faith groups working together on a social action project, strong relationships can be built; these initiatives provide a positive image of faith groups in the Borough as well as making a difference.
We would like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved in the similar events in the future.
