Staff and volunteers shine light on Trust at Diwali celebrations

Hundreds of visitors to the weekend’s Festival of Lights celebrations in Bedford had the opportunity to discover more about our service.

A stall was set up at the Bedford Corn Exchange on Saturday (29th October), promoting the work of the Trust during the special event.

Diwali is the most important holiday for millions of Indians around the world and is known as the ‘festival of lights’ because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small earthenware oil lamps called diyas – the word Diwali literally means ‘rows of lighted lamps’.

Equality Diversity and Inclusion Manager Navrita Atwal, who attended the festival, said: “The stand was visited by hundreds of attendees and this was a good opportunity us to raise awareness of our work within the community, as well as promote job opportunities in both clinical and non-clinical roles.

“Thank you to all our staff who volunteered their time to attend.”
