On the other hand, the Philippine Centre is headed by hermano mayor Joseph Parinas has been organizing the said ‘Barrio Fiesta’ in partnership with TFC in Europe, headed by Garcia, since 2010 to bring together all Filipinos and Filipinos-at-heart in UK and nearby countries, for a two-day event that replicates the elements of a Philippine fiesta, as its name connotes.

Apart from the celebrity showcase, it also offered Filipino activities such as games and promos and treats, including meet-and-greets and a food fiesta, which are a usual scene in barrio fiestas back in the Philippines, which probably have been missed by most kababayans now based in UK.

The said event is not just all fun, but it is also a venue for Filipinos to contribute and support Filipino causes. The Philippine Centre turned over to Santos-Concio a donation of GBP3,000 for ABS-CBN Foundation’s Sagip Kapamilya, a program dedicated to relief operations during calamities and rehabilitation projects.
