RALPH Fox, the mayor of Brent, is promoting charities concerned with both young and elderly people.
On Monday he attended a performance of Timberland Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, performed by Harlesden Youth Theatre, in order to promote BANG Edutainment, a charity specialising in youth media training.
The youngsters had rehearsed for six weeks to produce the play, which is set in an Australian penal colony and concerns convicts dabbling in amateur dramatics.
The mayor is also promoting Age Concern, which aims to assist Brent's older population.
He said: "I am very keen to stress the importance of dignity between young and older people. I enjoy taking part in both young and old people's events and activities and I look forward to many more to come."
Older Adult Multicultural Day takes place on Friday at Belvedere House, Willesden.
Visitors can enjoy cultural events including steel drumming and Bollywood dancing.
Food will be served throughout the day, which seeks to celebrate equality and diversity in the borough.
