Serena Lola interviewing Maria's husband and former England rugby coach Philip Keith-Roach.
In the last few months we have been working on developing a special documentary highlighting the extraordinary life of our former Representative Deputy Lieutenant for Hounslow, Maria Pedro who sadly passed away last November. The documentary, presented by our youth volunteer Serena Lola, will enable future generations to learn more about Maria’s life and to provide an example of great resilience, hope and faith to children and adults across the UK and beyond.
We have been working closely with Maria’s husband and former Rugby World Cup winning coach Philip Keith-Roach to help facilitate this documentary. We have so far interviewed Philip, Pricilla Ledley representing the Army Cadets, Alan Fraser, Taz Virdee and the Baroness Floella Benjamin at the House of Lords. We have also interviewed a few young people who worked with Maria and her friends and former colleagues. We will be interviewing our MP Seema Malhotra and celebrity chefs Raymond Blanc and Michael Caines soon. Watch this space.
