New mayor of Camden installed
The New Mayor of Camden will be making disability issues her number one priority during her term in office.
Gospel Oak ward councillor Cllr Larraine Revah, who has a severely disabled daughter and a child with special education needs, was installed as the new Mayor of Camden, during a ceremony last night (20 May).
She will be raising money for her chosen charity KIDS, which cares for more than 8,000 disabled children, young people and their families every year by delivering around 140 services across England.
Her theme for the year will be to promote awareness and a greater understanding across our communities of the difficulties people with disabilities face on a daily basis.
Cllr Nadia Shah was installed as her deputy.
"As a parent of a severely disabled young adult and a son with special education needs I know how tough it can be for the whole family when caring for that child or children.
"KIDS were there for me when I needed their help and support during the first difficult years after my daughter Maya was born prematurely.
"I am so pleased to now be in a position as Mayor to help promote and raise awareness of the wonderful work they do and to raise much needed funds to help them continue this very worthwhile work."
