Prof. Peter was delighted to co-host a dinner in support of Namal College, Pakistan, at the eponymous Nobu London in Old Park Lane on Saturday night.
Prof. Peter and fellow hosts, Mohammed Amersi, Amit Bhatia and Syed Bukhari were joined by Imran Khan, former Capitan of the Pakistan Cricket Team, and the Chairman and founder of Namal College, for an evening of wonderful food and delightful company.
The select list of just 50 guests raised £150,000 in less than 3 hours, a fantastic achievement that will help the college continue offering financial assistance to undergraduates from rural and less privileged backgrounds.
Mr Imran Khan established Namal College in 2008 when he was awarded the Chancellorship of the University of Bradford, with the aim to make quality higher education available and affordable for the marginalised rural youth in the region. Namal College is an associate college of the University of Bradford and now has 300 students studying for a University of Bradford degree for a fraction of what it would cost to study at the University in the UK. Ninety percent of Namal College students are provided with full or partial scholarships.
