Over 100 people attended last week’s event at Shaka Zulu bar in Camden Market, including fellow councillors, community leaders and Camden residents.

Mayor Revah said: “We had a fantastic night at Shaka Zulu last week. All the funds raised on the night, which was in excess of £22,000 will go towards my chosen charity KIDS – which does amazing work helping disabled children and their families.”

KIDS is a national charity which has worked to transform the lives of disabled children and young people for more than forty-five years.

It supports children with any kind of disability, from birth until age twenty-five, with a range of play, development, learning and training opportunities and provides information, advice, respite and activity groups to support parents and carers.

Mayor Revah has been supporting KIDS’ work in Camden over the past year. Over 500 families have been helped by the charity through home visits, short breaks, key working, parent forums and sibling groups.
