25 Years of Contributions into the lives of Young People in Peterborough
I am pleased to share with you that last year I completed my 25 years of continuous work with the young people of Peterborough. I truly feel immensely proud of my contributions into the lives of so many young people. Most importantly young people show a great respect me by calling me uncle T. I wrote one of my books specifically dedicated to the young people I work with!

Exhibition at Museum and Cathedral
I organised six-week exhibition at the Peterborough Museum and held a ten day exhibition at the Peterborough Cathedral last year (2014) and I am pleased to report that both exhibitions went exceptionally well and part of the project was over 170 page A5 community heritage in photographs book, A6 booklet with summary of the community history in the city, display of a dozen individual profiles, a DVD of the Peterborough British-Pakistani community and some small Pakistan exhibits.
This was the first ever exhibition of this kind held at the Peterborough Museum and offered a unique opportunity to learn about the history of Peterborough British-Pakistani community. I am immensely proud that I lead this project from start to finish.
To my late parents Haji Anayat Ali and Azmat Jan for giving me a good upbringing, love, support and enabling me to shape my life to that person I am today! THANK YOU!!

Pilgrimage of Hajj
I was delighted to share with you that I traveled on once a lifetime, a month long journey pilgrimage of Hajj to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was an amazing, wonderful, emotional, demanding and life changing experience, which is difficult to describe in words but one has to go through the experience to be able to understand.
