Mr Hamdan, Director of Arabian Oud London, was present to support Keith Vaz MP and the Silver Star Appeal in raising money to run a Mobile Diabetes Assessment Unit, which will provide tests for all those who may wish to have one and will promote culturally sensitive healthcare.
The Unit will travel to local community centres, schools, work places and other organisations in the Leicester region and beyond.
Mr Hamdan was amongst the 350 guests present at the Gala dinner, amongst which were the Leader of the House of Commons Rt Hon Jack Straw MP, Shilpa Shetty, the Yemen Foreign Minister Dr Al-Qirbi, the famous footwear designer Jimmy Choo and British Bollywood star Upen Patel.
Guests were treated to a classical recital by the master tabla player Zakir Hussain and the pianist Michael Harvey.
The dinner was a great success and the Charity Auction raised a significant amount raised to continue the work of the Silver Star Appeal.
