Conservative Parliamentary Candidate takes time off from his Election Campaign
Mr Matthew Offord, Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Hendon visited The Sri Saddhatissa International Buddhist Centre yesterday, to offer his sympathies to the Chief Sanganayake, Rev.Piyadassi Thero, on the disastrous floods in Sri Lanka.

It was creditable that during a heightened campaign to win his seat Mr Offord was moved by the suffering of Sri Lankans facing floods and loss of life. There are many Sri Lankan families residing in his Hendon constituency.

Rev. Piyadassi Thero with the assistance of the other monks in the temple chanted Pirith and Blessed Mr Offord for his wellbeing and success at the elections.

The gathering of devotees for the evening puja were surprised and happy to meet their member of parliament. They had many questions to ask their MP on this occasion.
