The Asian Circle was the Official Charity Partner


Thank you to the Asian Media Awards

In 2016 The Asian Circle and Oxfam were selected as the official charity partners for the Asian Media Awards, which was held at the beautiful Hilton Manchester Deansgate hotel.

Established in 2013, the Awards highlight the talent and innovation of “those who excel in the Asian and Mainstream media” and brings together journalists, TV presenters, PR and media experts and bloggers.

The ceremony, which brings together some of the best known faces of British Asian media, was hosted by ITV London broadcaster and presenter Nina Hossain and featured a special message from our founder, Annie Lennox. Some of the laureate guests of the night were journalist and broadcaster Fatima Manji, actor Art Malik, Nitin Ganatra and Coronation Street’s Shelley King.

This year the awards had representatives from The Asian Circle among its guests. The Asian Circle held a raffle with unique prizes donated by some of our ambassadors and supporters.

Thanks to the generosity of the Asian Media Awards organisers and guests, The Asian Circle raised over £2,000, all of which will be donated to an Oxfam project that supports survivors of domestic violence in CChattisgarh and Odisha, India. Click here to find out more about the project.
