Coventry trainee awarded Young Achiever for commitment to charity

Coventry Editorial 24th Jun, 2017   0

A HUMBLE trainee is delighted with the recognition her charitable causes will receive following her ‘Young Achiever’ award.

Rubeena Mehat, a trainee at a Coventry and Warwickshire law firm, has been awarded in recognition of her commitment to charity and community work.

The trainee solicitor was presented with the Young Achiever award at the British Indian Awards, which recognises the achievements of the British Indian community across the UK.

Rubeena was nominated for the award anonymously and was invited to make a detailed submission to the judges which included information about her charity and community work.

Her achievements include acting as the coordinator and ambassador of the City Sikhs Network in the Midlands, fundraising for homeless charity Coventry Cyrenians – and, in August, she is aiming to raise £1,000 for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation by riding the world’s fastest zip line.

Rubeena said: “I am delighted to have won this award, which is great recognition not only for myself, but also for the charitable causes that I am committed to.

“I hope that this award will help to bring further recognition for these great causes.”

Jonathan Hall, managing director at Mander Hadley Solicitors, added: “All of us here at Mander Hadley Solicitors are delighted for Rubeena.

“She has achieved a great deal for local good causes and so this recognition is well-deserved.”
