Huddersfield entrepreneur Ajaz Ahmed has been congratulated by Prince Charles for his contribution to mentoring young people in some of Yorkshire’s most deprived communities.
The founder of Freeserve, who also works closely with Yorkshire law firm LCF Law, started working with mentoring charity Mosaic three years ago. The charity was founded by the Prince of Wales in 2007.
And he has made such an impression that Prince Charles invited him and a number of other successful mentors to a reception at Sandringham to celebrate their achievements.
Ajaz has worked with LCF Law for the last five years and is a co-founder of the company’s free legal library at www.legal365.com .
He served two terms on the governing council of Huddersfield University and continues his involvement by sitting on the advisory board of the university’s business school.
Said Ajaz: “Mosaic is a fantastic organisation that makes a huge difference to thousands of young people every year by raising their aspirations, helping their confidence to grow and supporting them in exploring a huge range of skills from effective communication through to developing entrepreneurial talents.
“I’m always proud to say I am associated with Mosaic and meeting Prince Charles and hearing about his vision for the organisation was a huge privilege.”
Mosaic, an initiative of Business in the Community, provides fully funded mentoring programmes to help create opportunities for young people growing up in some of the most deprived communities.
