Labour Mayoral Candidate Ken Livingstone joined over 700 people at a fundraising dinner for Side by Side integrated nursery and special needs school in February. Mark from the Community and Not-for-Profit team was on hand to ensure that the event went smoothly, while the PR Office’s Chairman, Shimon Cohen introduced the guest speaker.
On the night, Mr Livingstone said:
“I remember being taken round Side by Side as Mayor, and what remained fixed in my mind was the relationship between the children within the school and the teachers and the parents and the community. I know that my successor as Mayor has looked equally sympathetically on this school and I’m not at all surprised about that. Some things are just completely above party politics and elections and Side by Side is one of those things.”
A staggering £500,000 was raised, which will go towards the maintaining the school.
