Stevenage’s diverse cultural heritage was celebrated at a gala concert last weekend.
Celebrate!!! at the Gordon Craig Theatre featured a wide variety of acts including Gabz, Filipino traditional folk fancers and the Stagecoach Drama Troupe.
The Campbell Younge Award – given in recognition of work someone does with multicultural communities in the town – went to international para-badminton player Gobi Ranganathan, pictured left with mayor of Stevenage Councillor Sherma Batson.
Gobi, who visits schools locally and nationally encouraging youngsters to aim high, said: “It’s been a tough year because of my health and receiving the award was great. I want to say thank you to Councillor Michelle Gardner and Sherma Batson for all their support.”
