Luxury care home provider Primetower has announced its sponsorship for the Indian Mela event at Poole Park on Saturday August 27.

The free family event which takes place from 10am to 4pm, is organised by the Dorset Indian Association, a group of enthusiastic Indian families from the county who aim to unite communities through cultural programs and activities.

John Yeoman, managing director of Primetower, said: “We’re really proud and excited to be a sponsor of the Indian Mela event at Poole Park. The Links care home in Broadstone, and The Lindsay care home in Poole are places which welcome community involvement and we love the ethos and aim of the festival and we’re sure it will be a fun family event.”

Indian Mela includes a variety of home-cooked Indian food, live cooking demonstrations, cultural dances, live music, henna painting and visitors can try on traditional Indian wear.

Funds raised from the event will go directly to Poole charity Forest Holme Hospice.
