A club has celebrated five years helping deaf people from across the borough.

More than 150 people helped celebrate Harrow United Deaf Club’s (HUDC) fifth anniversary at the C&L Country Club on Saturday.

During the day there were performances from singer Omoyele Thomas, speeches from the club's patrons, the ‎Deputy Lieutenant of Harrow John Purnell and Margaret Purnell and dance performances from television Star Karan Pangali.

The day also marked the launch of the organisation’s new website www.hudc.org.uk, which the club hopes will attract more people to get involved with future events.

President of HUDC Asif Iqbal MBE, said: “It has been fantastic achievement the last five years and Harrow United Deaf Club has achieved so much and the hard work has paid off.

“A massive thanks to everyone who supported the event including our performers who donated their time.

“Also everyone who were involved in organising the event – we couldn’t have done it without your support.”

HUDC was previously called Harrow Asian Deaf Club and changed its name in October 2013 to welcome new members from the borough’s different communities.

This was an event par exellence!The 5th year celebrations went off with a bang at the C&L Club ,Northolt.The entire venue and hall were beautifully decorated and the welcome most warm.

In addition special guests included Bharat Pindoria of Pindoria solicitors.He made a presentation for £5000 to HUDC on behalf of a deceased client.Many presentations were made.There were beautiful dances by the Rochford Irish Dance Group who were so delightfully graceful.Singer Omoyele Thomas sang beautifully at the start and ended the programme as well.Special performances from Bengali folk songs about the beauty of the world were performed by Nadia Chowdhury and Sawda Khan.Their costumes were so pretty!

The piece de resistance as the Bollywood Star performer and one of much fame in Bollywood circles---Karan Pengali.His dancing instructions were simple to follow and in no time he had so many on the dance floor practicing Bollywood steps.

The catering was equally good and food plentiful and very tasty.The raffle also went down a treat and everybody spent a very happy afternnon with the HUDC.

On this special occasion many messages were received congratulating this progressive group,from people such as the Mayor of London,Boris Johnson.
The best part of it is that the HUDC have launched their web--site and will now be able to reach out to even more people and help them.We wish them every success as they go forwards and hope many will support their efforts.
