Mosaic has celebrated an historic second year as beneficiary of the Aagrah Restaurant chain’s annual charity dinner; the event took place in Bradford last on Monday 7th October.
Ahead of the event, which was held at Aagrah headquarters in The Aagrah Midpoint Suite, Thornbury, our Patron, HRH the Prince of Wales, issued a statement outlining how delighted and grateful he is that his charity has once again been chosen as beneficiary.
Four hundred business guests attended the sold out annual event. Attendees included a host of influential business men and women and author, broadcaster, entertainer and former MP Gyles Brandreth. The event raised a staggering £80,000 in total, with the main beneficiary charity being Mosaic.
Keynote speaker, Mosaic Board member and Head of Religion and Ethics and Commissioning Editor for TV, Aaqil Ahmed said: “It has once again been an amazing charity dinner and has raised a staggering amount of money. The money raised will go a long way to supporting more and more young people to gain mentoring support from Mosaic and allowing them to achieve their dreams.”
Aagrah’s Managing Director, Mohammed Aslam, MBE said: “We are delighted to support HRH The Prince of Wales’ charity Mosaic for the second year in order to continue to develop the work we started last year. We hope the success of the young people involved inspires others to achieve greater success.”
Mosaic’s National Director Jonathan Freeman addressed the dinner, thanking those who so generously donated to the organisation. He said afterwards: “As always, the event has been fantastic. Not only has it raised considerable funds to support many more young people to gain mentoring support to improve their lives, but we have encouraged more business people to become mentors for Mosaic. The incredible amount raised this evening will go a long way in supporting even more young people in the Yorkshire Region.”
