Mosaic’s mentors came together at a mid-year celebration to recognise their collective achievements across the Yorkshire region.
The event, held at Café Zoya in Bradford provided an opportunity to thank over 85 mentors and supporters for all their hard work and commitment to young people in the area. It also provided an occasion for networking with other likeminded individuals.
In attendance, Sarah Khan Bashir, regional chairman and one of Mosaic’s founding members said:
“The enthusiasm and ongoing support of our mentors is crucial to Mosaic’s success. We would not be able to fulfil our vital work in Yorkshire if we didn’t have this magnificent network of volunteers and for that we are truly grateful. The lives of so many children are touched positively by these people, there is no question about the impact of our mentor’s guidance.”
Guest speakers at the event included Yousef Mahmood, an exemplary student from Bradford Grammar School and Farnaz Khan a Bradford-born entrepreneur.
Farnaz who is owner of the award winning, globally recognised Fit Britches brand spoke about her support of the charity and the importance of supporting young people from less privileged backgrounds. She commented:
“It was an honour to be a part of such a wonderful evening. Talking to the mentors about their experiences within the Mosaic programmes really highlighted the importance of the role they undertake.
“Investing in young people is crucial to the ongoing success of our society. Developing their skills and giving them confidence at an early age can make all the difference to their future.”
