On the eve of 19th February, the CEO of the Patchwork Foundation, Imran Sanaullah was recognised as the Social Leader of the Year at the British Muslim Awards 2019.
The award was held to recognise a wide range of achievements from outstanding Muslim individuals across the UK who positively impact business, charity, sport, arts, culture, religious advocacy, education and medicine among others, and simultaneously and unknowingly battle negative stereotypes every day. The awards endeavour to showcase the strength of the British Muslim community, the impact it has on culture and its achievements over the last year, with categories ranging from Muslim in the Community, Young Achiever of the Year and Spirit of Britain.
Upon winning the award, Imran said “It’s a real honour to have been recognised and awarded Social Leader of the Year at the British Muslim Awards 2019. The award is a reflection of the hard work of the volunteers and team at the Patchwork Foundation who work extremely hard to make our democracy more accessible and support the development of young people across the UK. I hope this serves as recognition and inspiration to all young people working hard to make a difference to our society.”
