Cherie Blair, Preity Zinta celebrate Lohri in New Delhi

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blairs wife Cherie Blair and Bollywood actor Preity Zinta celebrated the harvest festival of Lohri here on Wednesday.


New Delhi, Jan 14 : Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's wife Cherie Blair and Bollywood actor Preity Zinta celebrated the harvest festival of Lohri here on Wednesday.

Cherie Blair, who is also the president of Loomba Trust that works for the uplift of widows, was in New Delhi to create awareness about the plight of widows across the world.

Preity Zinta is the Trust's global brand ambassador.

Both of them celebrated the festival at a five-star hotel in New Delhi.

Cherie Blair said she hoped the festival would bring a change in the wintry chill.

"Well I certainly enjoyed the festival very much this evening and the fire is very welcomed but I think that is the spirit of Lohri. It's about return of the seasons and the hope of better weather to come," she added.

Preity said the celebration was part of raising money for the trust.

"We are here to raise awareness; we are here to raise money tonight especially. Of course we are celebrating Lohri also but to raise money for this trust so that it can help widows all over India and all over the world," said Zinta.

The trust aims at helping the disadvantaged and marginalized widows to empower themselves through its various projects worldwide.
