Pertemps donate toward Harrow's float in London's New Year's Day Parade | Pertemps

Pertemps have donated £1000 to Harrow Council for their float in this year’s New Year’s Day Parade in London.

We’ve stepped in to make sure the council is participating once again at one of the capital city’s highlights of the calendar year that is expected to be attended by over 10,000 performers. 

Teresa Bennett at Pertemps said: “We have been a proud partner of Harrow Council for several years now, so it gives us great pleasure to help out with a donation that will ensure they have a float taking part in what is an eagerly anticipated event for a great cause.”

Last year, Harrow wowed with their show-stopping Moulin Rouge float which featured the iconic red six-metre-high windmill, flashing lights and an array of dancers and singers. After months of preparation, the entry won second place and a whopping £9000 for the Mayor’s charities. 

Every year the competition gets tougher and tougher, but Harrow are determined to reach first place with their float this year. 

Councillor John Hinkley of Harrow Council added: “We would like to thank Pertemps for this very kind donation, without which we would not have been able to take part in the annual parade. Our staff are all really looking forward to the event and are already working on producing a float that will be bigger and better than ever before. We can’t wait to make the people of Harrow proud on New Year’s Day!”

Every year since 1997 all of London’s 31 Boroughs are invited to enter the parade to demonstrate the diversity of the city. The entry can take the form of an act, float, performance or dance ensemble, making the Borough entries the heart of the parade.

All entries are automatically entered into the Boroughs’ Competition, competing for a share of the big charity cash prize which in recent years has been £40,000. Since the first Parade in 1987, LNYDP has raised well over a million pounds for charity.
