The Creole Party - Celebrating 39 years of Seychelles independence

4th June 2015

Dear Friends

It is my great pleasure to invite you to join with Sychelles Life and the Kevin Betsy Foundation in celebrating 39 years of Seychelles Independence. We will be holding a "Seychelles Night" on Saturday 4th July 2015 at the Polish Club, 238-246 King Street, Hammersmith, London W6 0RF. Ravenscourt Park (District Line) is the nearest Tube Station.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Ken London, Rita Romain and DJ Rudy plus the famous Cascade Sega Dancers. There will also be many fabulous raffle prizes to be won.

We are dlighted that once again Woking News & Mail, Knaphill Print is our official sponsor on the night. All proceeds will go to the Kevin Betsy Foundation, Charity No: 07997598.

Seychelles gained nationhood on 29th June 1976 and I am proud that for the second year Seychelles Life and the Kevin Betsy Foundationcan be part of the annual celebrations.

Please note that all tickets for the evening must be bought in advance. Prices are £12 for adults and £6 for children under the age of 16. To avoid disappointment, please make sure you apply before 20th June.

This, like all the community events we organise, is to bring together Seychellois Diaspora from all over the UK and Europe. By being in touch we can become stronger and more supportive of each other in the best possible way.

I truly look forward to seeing you all at this special soirée.

Best regards
Lewis
