70 of Mosaic’s mentors have been recognised by HRH The Prince of Wales for the positive contribution they have made to children and adults in some of the country’s most deprived communities.
The mentors were invited to attend a prestigious reception at Sandringham to celebrate their achievements, along with some of Mosaic’ most generous supporters and dignitaries.
The mentors attending the reception came from all around England and were selected for their outstanding contribution and commitment to helping others. During the event the winner of the Princess Badiya Mentor of the Year Awards 2014, Abdin Ahmed was announced following an exemplary track record of working with children in several East London schools.
Mr Ahmed, a Senior Technical Support Analyst from Denton’s Law Firm who has been a mentor since 2009 commented on his win saying:
“I’m absolutely honoured to have been given this award. Working with Mosaic and the children is my way of giving something back and I certainly never expected recognition for it but I’m obviously delighted and flattered to have been selected from such a worthy, inspirational group of individuals.”
HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan, Mosaic’s founder Chairman who presented the award added:
“It is very good to have the opportunity to thank Mosaic’s wonderful volunteer mentors. The time they generously give to providing advice, guidance and support to so many young people has a great impact on their lives and future prospects.
“It is an honour to have an award in my name that recognises particularly outstanding mentors. I am pleased to announce Abdin Ahmed as this year’s winner. His contribution and dedication are an inspirational example of what mentoring can achieve.”
