Masood Malik nominated for award

Awards in Scotsman offices on Tues 10th Aug
The Evening News, in conjunction with the Post Office, is running an awards process to identify winners in a series of different categories.  The process thus far has been by community nomination with votes by text or via coupons in the paper.  In each category the field has been narrowed down to 3 finalists.

Masood Malik is now at the final stage of the 'Best Community Contribution' category and his citation is as follows:

MASOOD MALIK, 70, is a well-respected member of Edinburgh's Asian community and runs the Asian 50 Plus Club for older people to get together and have lunch.

He has worked on many fundraising projects at home and abroad. The director of the Pakistan Society, he is also credited with establishing strong links between the Capital's Asian community and local polticians.
 

And that last point is incontrovertable.   Details of other nominees in the 'Best Community Contribution' category can be found here.

Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony in the Scotsman Offices in Holyrood Road next Tuesday (Aug 10th).
