MyLahore’s Unsung Local Heroes award back for 2022

The Bradford restaurant is searching for 22 people from across Yorkshire to honour in their Unsung Local Heroes awards.

Popular British-Asian restaurant MyLahore is searching for 22 people from across Yorkshire to honour in their Unsung Local Heroes awards.

The awards, now in its second year, is in celebration of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who visited MyLahore in 2020, before the pandemic, to “celebrate togetherness and community spirit.”

MyLahore welcomed William and Kate to their Bradford base in 2020.

MyLahore is looking for people who are champions in their community, people who have worked tirelessly over the past two years, going above and beyond.

The award-winning restaurant is looking for brave key workers to stay-at-home parents.

The winners of the awards will receive a £100 gift card to use at any of MyLahore locations.

Due to the pandemic, the winners will be announced online and shared across social media.

The man behind the awards is director of MyLahore and Asian Standard’s most influential of 2021, Ishfaq Farooq.

Mr Farooq said: “We’re excited to mark the anniversary of the Duke and Duchess’s visit to Bradford by thanking 22 local community champions in our own little way like we did last year.

“We at MyLahore are often reminded of the blessing of growing uprooted in a world of small kitchens yet huge hearts.

Ishfaq Farooq, Director at the MyLahore Group.

“A world with people who may not be regarded as very wealthy in the usual sense yet show the true richness of spirit in the way they selflessly serve others – in their families and in their communities, and those facing hardship.

“So, if you know a ‘hidden gem’ who’s been tirelessly putting others first over the last year, going above and beyond, without being in the limelight, why not nominate them for a chance for them to receive a £100 MyLahore E-Gift Card?”

Last year, Zieda, a homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother won the award for helping her neighbours and family tirelessly during the pandemic. Zieda cooked for neighbours and shopped for essentials when people were self-isolating, and kept up with online learning with grandchildren, trying her best when English doesn’t come naturally to her.

A boxing coach, Umer, a trainee midwife, Fitnete, and Raheela, a deputy pathology advisor who works at hospital sites across Bradford in oncology and chemotherapy services, were also some of the winners of the award.

Nominations close on 31 January. Visit MyLahore and click the link in the bio for nominations and full terms.

Asian Standard will also be launching its first Community Champions awards next month. Check the website and social media regularly for the announcement and how to nominate people in your community.
