Congratulations to all of those who won awards at the Muslim News Awards – in particular Mohammed Mangera for the Uthman Dan Fodio Award for Excellence in Community Development, and Iqbal Wahhab for the Ummul Mu’minin Khadijah Award for Excellence in Enterprise.
Iqbal is a Mosaic Board Member, and proven serial entrepreneur with a background in PR, journalism, the restaurant business, as well as advisory roles to the government. In 1991 Iqbal set up his own PR firm; in 2001 he launched the Cinnamon Club; 2005 saw the opening of Roast Restaurant in Borough Market; and he currently chairs the Government’s Ethnic Minority Advisory Group.
Mohammed Mangera is a member of the regional leadership group for Mosaic in the North West. By supporting families as they grieve for their family members, Mohammed assists with preparations in burying loved ones – his funeral service takes much of the pain out of this time by ensuring that all processes are run in accordance with Islamic customs and laws.
