After a year-long process, Disability News Service recently published their list of the most influential disabled people in the UK. Asif Iqbal, the President of Harrow United Deaf Club, has been placed in the top 10 of the most influential disabled people in Public Services.
Asif’s reaction to his well-deserved honour was as follows:
“The list is a powerful way to demonstrate and reinforce the message that disabled people can achieve/ aim higher and break the glass ceiling. I have known so many people named on the list and many more not listed, they are all inspirational.”
He added: “It’s good to be recognised as a key figure in public services and encourage people to contribute/ influence for better change, making a difference to the local or national communities.”
Not only did Asif recently win this personal award, but the Harrow United Deaf Club has also been shortlisted for the Signature’s Community Spirit Award, for its contribution to the local community. In order to win this award, Harrow United Deaf Club needs the public to vote!
Nick Hurd MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner said:
‘I am delighted to see that the hard work and dedication of Asif and everyone that works at Harrow United Deaf Club, has been rewarded. This organisation is invaluable to its local community, and many deaf members of the community have benefitted from its services and support. I hope that everyone gets behind Harrow United Deaf Club and votes for them for the Signature’s Community Spirit Award, so that it can receive the public recognition it deserves’.
