News Update 2014
It’s been a busy year for us! So busy in fact we have not managed to update this website as much as we would have liked! Please understand that all of us involved in UK Friends of Unique are volunteers and we carry out our duties as Trustees on top of busy work and family lives.
This year we have been involved in a few things.
Awareness for us and Unique Home is growing – we past the 10,000 likes on Facebook which is a HUGE milestone! Please do like our page if you haven’t already!
We carried out a successful social media campaign on the girls birthdays this year by asking our supporters to join in the celebrations by posting a photo of them with cake! We asked everyone to make a wish on behalf of the girls. Our co-founder Tom Harrigan MBE was guest of honour at the celebrations in India and thoroughly enjoyed himself!
We have been involved in two ladies Giddha events – an afternoon of traditional Punjabi folk dancing for women. One event was in the South and the other in Birmingham. Both were well attended and raised circa £4,000.
In addition to Tom’s visit, two of our other trustees visited Unique Home this year. Rupinder & Harinder visited in September. The new build is progressing very well. Bibi Ji and Trustee Satnam Singh send their heartfelt gratitude and well wishes to all supporters!
Looking forward to 2015 we are actively involved in planning another Dinner & Dance in West Midlands. Saturday 24th January 2015 is the date, Regency Suite, Halgley Road, Birmingham is the venue. The theme is ‘Lohri For Her’ we will be celebrating our daughters and this festival in a very Punjabi way! All welcome!
There is also a Tartan & Turban Event in Glasgow in January 2015- we are one of the chosen charities!
Thank you for all your support this year!
