Dr Rehana Master

Our very own School governor; Dr Rehana Master was short listed for a Public Service Fusion award which celebrates all the wonderful voluntary work she does as well as her selfless charity work, primarily for Abu Hanifah Foundation.

She fulfils 2 key roles within the Foundation, that of Chief Welfare Officer and Head of AHF Health Services. What is more, she carries out over 400 voluntary hours a year whilst juggling a medical GP job and caring for 2 young boys and an equally busy husband.

“There are lots of worthy finalists, so it is an honour and a privilege just to be considered” Rehana remarked before the glitzy ceremony held at King George’s Hall, Blackburn on Saturday, 13th May 2017, which featured 100’s of community workers and notable organisations and personalities from all across the northwest.

She was very overwhelmed and extremely proud to be announced as the first winner f the night, describing it as ‘a very special and humbling feeling’. She thanked all the other dozens of AHF volunteers in her acceptance speech and urged everyone to give a little time to voluntary work, because together we can all achieve so much more.
