A special tribute has been paid to a Wembley grandmother who devoted her life to helping women seeking refuge and asylum.
Hanna Field was recognised by Brent Council for her work with the West London Migrant and Refugee Forum.
The mother-of three-who leaves her husband Dr Kamal Field and two grandchildren died last August aged 61.
A special film highlighting Mrs Field’s work was shown in tribute to her at an exhibiton that celebrated International Women’s Day
Her daughter Zaineb Field, who is director of operations for Field’s Care in Brent, said: “I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all the hard work and dedication taken to run this event. There was a fantastic attendance, the hall was beautifully decorated and the speakers were excellent. I cannot praise the equality team enough. Our family and friends were extremely touched by the tribute and extra time given to our slot.”
The exhibition with more than 20 stalls was held in Brent Council’s Grand Hall, where people could find out more on the services available for women and girls in the borough, such as the victim support advisory and yoga classes.
Cllr Lesley Jones, Mayor of Brent, added: “The event provided practical support and advice that everyone could relate to. The panel discussions were brilliant and sparked some lively debate. I am delighted to attend events like this that help raise awareness of the challenges and achievements within the field of gender equality.”
