The Nottingham Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Caroline Henry and her team were at the Nottingham Carnival 2022 held in August, to meet and greet people and show their readiness to work with various communities in Nottingham to bring about effective change especially with those from ethnic minorities.

They were well received at the Carnival grounds on the embankment. 

Commissioner Caroline Henry was also accompanied by her husband Darren Henry who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Broxtowe constituency, Nottinghamshire.

Penny Cooper and Angela Wathoni of Mojatu Foundation met with Caroline Henry for the first time, since the PCC agreed to fund the Mojatu Foundation Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Clinic in Nottingham, for the past three years. 

This funding comes at a time when survivors of FGM needed somewhere as a safe haven to discuss issues affecting them and sharing their lived experiences.

Mojatu Foundation greatly appreciate the PCC role in the community especially for vulnerable people and their families. This is a great step forward for our local communities in the campaign to end FGM in Nottingham.

The carnival hosted a great display of cultural performances, costumes, and other forms of entertainment.

Families and children from across Nottinghamshire turned out in large numbers to grace the entertaining atmosphere.

Carnivals and festival are beginning to shape back to normalcy after the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged such euphoric entertaining moments.

 The Chairperson of Mojatu Foundation Penny Cooper expressed gratitude and appreciation to the Police and Crime Commissioner for her office’s continuous support to Mojatu Foundations projects in ending FGM for a number of years.
