Mr Rob Marris Esq
Heartiest congratulations to Moreland Trust Health and Social Care on its 10th anniversary.
What a magnificent milestone in the life of the Trust. More importantly, what a great achievement for thousands of people because, ultimately, the Trust is about serving people, especially the vulnerable elders of African Caribbean heritage who without this valuable service, would otherwise be isolated.
We all owe a great debt of gratitude to the founders and to those who followed them, for their selfless public service. Our particular thanks must go to the chair Mrs Essie Lewis; I am delighted that her huge efforts have now been formerly recognised by the award of a well-deserved MBE.
The achievements of the Caribbean heritage community are many and manifest. This progress has come about
because of the struggles, the hard work and the patience of many people and of many organisations, including the Moreland Trust.
To continue with that progress, we must all continue to work together. I pledge to do so. I salute the achievement of the Moreland Trust and wish it every success in the many years to come.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to congratulate the Moreland Trust on its 10th anniversary.
The African Caribbean community has played an instrumental role in the shaping both of our country and our city's future and continues to do so. It is a great pleasure to see various organisations across the city working together towards ensuring a better quality of life for African Caribbean elders and the Trust is a testimony to its success
The Trust demonstrates what can be achieved by working together and we need to continue that work together to ensure that we live in a fair society of mutual tolerance. I wish you every success in the future.
