Visit from The Deputy Mayor of London to The Africa Centre
On July 24th, Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, went on a tour of some of London’s local businesses.
Prime amongst those locations is The Africa Centre – recipients of £1.6m in award money from The Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund in December 2018.
As he visited the Low Line and got a better understanding of Southwark and it’s particular story , he was introduced to the current Africa Centre, the team and some of the hub tenants.
The Deputy Mayor of London for Business had a great time (in his words!) and left us with this quote:
“London embodies the principle of unity in diversity. Our diversity and multiculturalism is one of the greatest strength of our communities. I really enjoyed visiting The Africa Centre and The Low Line and seeing first hand the amazing work they are doing.”
