The All-White boat, party organised by Enjoy Sierra Leone, is an annual event which diasporas, including Sierra Leoneans, attend yearly.
The event commenced with a boat cruise from the Tower Millennium Pier in Tower Hill, in London, England. It cruised along the River Thames.
Participants enjoyed a magnificent view with an electric and dynamic atmosphere.
The organisers, Isatu Wurie Steven and Edmond Steven, talked about their mission to bring the community together.
Attendees explained the importance of community cohesion, emphasising the need for building stronger connections across our communities and creating events and conditions to build vibrant communities.
Some interviewees described the event as an unforgettable summer boat party extravaganza and a night filled with music and fun.
Others say this unique event was a chance to proudly fly the Sierra Leone and African flags. They also say it was an opportunity to meet old and new friends, celebrate friendship and life in general. They added that we must continue to endeavour to encourage and support positive connections within the Sierra Leone diaspora communities in the UK and elsewhere.
It was a fun-packed night on the Thames, filled with memorable moments.
The event lasted for around 3 hours, during which many were entertained with music, food and drinks and treated to a fantastic experience.
