On Saturday evening Julie attended the fundraiser for victims of last years Kashmir floods in Manchester, along with her European Parliamentary colleague, Afzal Khan MEP.
Guests included Yasmin Qureshi MP, and Raja Najabat Hussain, Chair of Jammu Kashmir Self Determination Movement, along with a host of Councillors, and local residents.
The Kashmir region has been devastated by the floods of 2014. A number of speakers spoke with passion on the issues the people left behind now face, and the need to help those people recover and rebuild their communities. Those present were incredibly generous in their support and all the money raised will go to help those directly affected.
