Coronation Awards Joy for Migrant Leaders CEO

awards Apr 26, 2023

Elham Fardad is one of the 500 outstanding volunteers to be chosen as the nation’s Coronation Champions. We are proud that our charity has been highlighted, by our CEO being recognised by Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort as part of the official Coronation celebrations in conjunction with Royal Voluntary Service.

With the support of Her Majesty The Queen Consort, a passionate advocate of volunteering and President of Royal Voluntary Service, the Coronation Champions Awards were launched to recognise exceptional volunteers from across the country at this momentous point in history. Across the UK, 500 Champions dazzled the judging panel with the impact of their work, their inspirational stories and unwavering commitment to volunteering. All Coronation Champions, including Elham Fardad, have been invited to attend one of the official Coronation celebrations, such as the Windsor Castle Coronation Concert or a Coronation Garden Party. They will also receive a specially designed, official Coronation Champions pin and a certificate signed by Their Majesties.

Catherine Johnstone CBE, Chief Executive of Royal Voluntary Service said: “We were completely blown away by the response to the Community Champions Awards and the huge volume of amazing nominees put forward. Our judges had a tough job selecting just 500 Champions from an array of thousands of inspirational individuals, who all deserve to be recognised and commended. “

“Each of our Coronation Champions displayed a commitment and contribution that far exceeds any expectation and we’re overjoyed to honour and thank them during this exciting point in history.”

Elham Fardad, Founder and CEO of Migrant Leaders expressed her gratitude: “It’s an honour to receive one of the Coronation Champions Awards launched by Royal Voluntary Service with Her Majesty The Queen Consort. This is testament to everything we have achieved together over the last five years with our Migrant Leaders team, mentees, mentors and corporate partners. Thank you everyone for your continuing support of our charity's work.”
