News ->Reuben Singh puts his faith in Timebank initiative

(24 November 2003)

Reuben Singh (right) with Gerry Yeung CBE and Guest.TimeBank, the national volunteering charity together with The Prince's Trust launched the first of a series of interfaith meals to raise awareness of its 'respect' initiative. The aim of the 'respect' dinners is to bring together prominent people of different faiths and backgrounds to discuss interfaith issues.

Perween Warsi CBEEntrepreneur Reuben Singh, this week held the inaugural 'respect' initiative dinner at Manchester's Lowry Hotel. He invited over 20 key players from the business, public and voluntary sectors in the North West. Amongst the attendees were Brenda Smith, Managing Director Granada Television, Gerry Yeung CBE, Yang Sing, Tom Bloxham MBE, Urban Splash, and Perveen Warsi CBE - S & A Foods.

The dinners serve as a forum to discuss issues and causes that the group feel they can work towards together. It is hoped that they will prove a springboard for close interfaith working on a number of local projects. Results of this week's discussions included a number of opportunities around education, sport, art and music. These opportunities would be a first step to bring young people in the North West together to listen to their views on how to create respect in their own community.

Brenda Smith MD Granada Television commented on the success of the evening, "TimeBank's 'respect' project is a worthy cause in the community and this group of committed individuals has tonight given their time and dedication to actually make a difference in young people's lives in the North West."
