A charity is planning a celebration to mark its fifth anniversary and tribute to its founder Kevin Jenkins OBE.

Ambition, Aspire, Achieve (AAA) in Canning Town is inviting people to save the date for the event at the Terence Brown Arc In The Park on September 25.

Details have yet to be released, but the occasion is to mark AAA's fifth year as a charity and pay tribute to founder Kevin Jenkins OBE, who died in April.
