So there I was sitting in the Great Hall at The Dorchester, Park Lane, LDN Monday night at the 2009 Muslim News Awards For Excellence. I could not take my eyes off the gigantic chandeliers! The line up of nominees were pretty amazing too. Most incredible awards went to those individuals who have made a REAL difference in their communities. Much direction in the lives of some winners has come directly from the loss of a loved one, social depravation, low self esteem and generally wanting to do better in life. I attended with Hanifa ‘Bubbles’ Hudson who is the UKs first recognised B-Girl. We laughed, clapped till our hands turned red and managed to not fall from the high heels we were wearing! Congratulations to the deserving winners.
