Over £75,000 has been raised during a fabulous evening of fundraising at The Spot in Derby on 17th May. This was one of our most successful fundraising events to date and all the Trustees are extremely moved by the level of support that has been shown.

The event was being held in memory of Mrs Irshad Begum, the mother of our Trustee Ajaz Najib, who passed away in 2013.

Mrs Irshad Begum was an advocate of the work of Midland Doctors and supported the charity both financially and through her belief in their principles. At the fundraising event we celebrated her life, remembered her valued support and continue the work that she sincerely believed in.

The Midland Doctors’ mission is to Impact health care in Pakistan for the poor and less privileged.

In 2013 Midland Doctors inaugurated their Medical Institute and Centre of Excellence in Muzaffarabad, Kashmir. The free health service they deliver to those in need can only be sustained with generous and continual donations from our supporters.

Mrs Begum believed in building hope for humanity and throughout the evening, we honoured her.

A large thankyou goes to everyone who contributed their time and resources to making the evening the wonderful success that it was.
