From the inspirational life of Mahatma Gandhi to the most popular meal in the United Kingdom being Chicken Tikka Masala the contribution made to this country by the Asian community is incalculable. Thank you for organising an event which affords gratitude to all those communities and professionals who, day in day out, work to the highest of standards for the benefit of us all.

—Glenda Jackson, MP for Hampstead and Kilburn
