For the first time ever, Diwali at The Savoy was hosted by One Family in partnership with the Hemraj Goyal Foundation on 10th November 2018.
In a very special evening to honour life, love, and light, this inaugural event took place at the celebrated landmark, bringing together an audience of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities. The event was supported by Aashni & Co, the Arora Group, Clyde & Co, Hallmark Care Homes, Lalique Boutique, Maisha Design and Madhus.
Hosted by comedian and actor, Sanjeev Bhaskar, the evening highlighted the problem of human trafficking across the Nepal-India border, and raised funds for the rescue, repatriation, and rehabilitation of survivors.
Sports Broadcaster Manish Bhasin spoke about his visit to Maiti Nepal, a One Family supported NGO, founded by social activist Anuradha Koirala, and the devastating impact of human trafficking on its victims and their families.
Music composer Shammi Pithia delivered a thought-provoking performance, which included vocals written and performed by residents of Maiti Nepal's Rehabilitation Centre in Kathmandu. Guests were also treated to a live performance from talented music artist Tanya Wells of Seven Eyes, and a rare live DJ Set from British Tabla artist and composer Talvin Singh, OBE.
