Nominees for British Muslim Awards 2014
Awards Presented by Islamic Bank of Britain
 
After receiving thousands of nominations from all over the country, the finalists for the British Muslim Awards presented by Islamic Bank of Britain have been announced.  The awards will recognise a wide range of achievements which cover various aspects of society including business, charity, sport, arts and culture and much more. The evening will be one of celebration, reflecting the significant role that Britain’s Muslim have in society.  Over 400 people will attend the glittering ceremony, which takes place at the Salford City Stadium, Manchester on Thursday, January 30. As well as recognising the achievements of British Muslims at the forefront of their industries the event will be raising money for The Well Foundation. Set up in 2008, The Well Foundation aims to raise money to build wells, install hand pumps and establish health and sanitation programs to provide accessible clean water to the stricken regions of the world. Irfan Younis, CEO at event organisers Oceanic Consulting, said “The Muslim community has been making huge contributions to a better United Kingdom and these awards are a reflection of some of the work that goes unrecognised. There are some truly inspirational individuals, businesses and organisations in all of our categories, and we would like to congratulate all of the finalists who continuously thrive to excel, making worthy contenders.”
