Our people

The Centre was founded by Mr Van Cuong Truong and his wife, who came to Britain as refugees in 1979. Both love Britain and being British citizens, but they also celebrate their Indochinese culture!

In the Queen’s New Year Honors 2010, Centre Manager Mr Van Coung Troung was awarded an MBE for his services to the Chinese Community in South East London.
