The party on Monday, February 10, marked half a century since the registration of the Redbridge and Community Relations Council, which is known today as the Redbridge Equalities and Community Council.

The charity was set up to promote equality, challenge discrimination and strive for a harmonious, diverse society.

It organises community projects, carries out work to stamp out hate crime and hosts outreach advice surgeries.

The anniversary event in Ilford was held to celebrate the contributions of the charity over the last 50 years and provide a chance for everyone involved to meet old friends and former colleagues.
