Because of the huge number of graduates and supporters in attendance, it wasn’t possible to hold the ceremony at Wai Yin’s dedicated Learning Centre in Mosely Street. Instead, a special venue was arranged at London Scottish House next to the Midland Hotel. This meant installing an audio visual system, which to the […]
