Khmer New Year - 2010




















I would like to express my gratitude for another successful Khmer New Year party. I am very touched and proud of your efforts and for sacrificing your time to travel from long distances to join us in making the day very special by helping with the food, music entertainment, traditional dances, popular dances, all helpers for: stage assistance, cater traditional food, the photographers and the decorations team’s work dedicated by Khmer student association.

It would not have been such a wonderful occasion without your participation.

This is especially appreciated in these times of economic difficulties, and it continues to ensure that the Khmer culture is kept alive and that the community stays focused and together.

I strongly hope that we as a community will continue to progress in this vein for the mutual benefit of all in the UK thereby ensuring a positive image of Cambodia internationally.

Bang Skaul: Casunik raised 698.00 GBP for Khmer New Year 2010 and donated directly to the monks.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs Sobopha Owen
