Businessman and philanthropist, Atul Pathak, held the 3rd Atul Pathak Community Awards in Parliament, in September.
The awards were set up by Mr Pathak in an effort to recognise the work undertaken by organisations in the local community to contribute and make a difference to their local communities.
There were ten awards given to community groups from across London and Berkshire as well as a donation to help fund a particular project and a ‘partnership pledge’, which will provide support from the Appt Corporation run by Mr Pathak.
Commenting on the event, Mr Freer said: “I was glad to be able to assist Atul and the Appt Corporation in what has become a greatly anticipated annual event.
He continued, “I look forward to continuing my support when nominations open for the 2017 awards in the New Year.”
