Dawn and Appt Corporation Chief Executive, Atul Pathak, presented three local charities with the Atul Pathak Community Award at its 4th Annual Awards ceremony.
The Community Awards are given to local charities to celebrate and recognise the great work that local charities and groups are doing in our local communities. They will also win a year’s partnership to their local McDonald’s and a financial donation of up to £2,000.
The three Brent Central based charities to receive the prestigious award, at the event held on the Terrace Pavilion in Parliament, were 1 Voice Community, Stonebridge Boxing Club and Friends of Cricklewood Library.
1 Voice Community provides practical advice and support run by and for parent carers of children with disabilities.
Stonebridge Boxing Club has helped to keep young children off the streets and out of trouble and is committed to tackling gun and knife crime. The club also encourages young people within the local community to live a better and healthier lifestyle.
Friends of Cricklewood Library, who have long campaigned to keep their local library which is currently being rebuilt. They have also continued promoting literacy and bringing people together in a social and educational environment.
Following the awards Dawn said:
It was a great honour to present the awards to the successful Brent groups. They put in so much work in the local community often without any recognition and this is a wonderful way to help support the work they do and give them the praise they deserve.
I would also like to thank the Chief Executive Atul Pathak and the Appt Corporation for their tireless work and commitment in the local community, they are a model corporation that works so hard and gives so much back to the communities they are based in.
