Focus Birmingham, the sight loss charity that I have been fundraising for, has been chosen as the charity of the night for the Midlands Asian-British Business Chamber of Commerce awards.
Even more exciting, Focus Birmingham has asked ME to do a short speech on their behalf.
A night of glitz and glam, surrounded by distinguished business professionals is definitely what I need right now. And I do so love speaking, especially to help a charity that I adore.
My speech goes amazingly well and I'm exceptionally well received by the attendees, who are so incredibly generous. We actually raised £10,000 tonight! And the after party was a well deserved celebration.
Definitely the highlight of my year!
