A special event celebrating the borough’s powerful women was capped off by three women scooping coveted prizes last month.

In late November, female community group Bollychicks hosted a ladies only awards night in Chadwell Heath where women from across Redbridge were able to come together and celebrate their own successes.

Around 300 women attended the night, which was raising money for Richard House Children’s Hospice

Redbridge councillor Farah Hussain, cabinet member for housing, who attended the awards, said: “It was a great evening which raised hundreds of pounds for charity.”

Another woman who attended said: “ It’s so lovely to see this sort of activity in our community. Well done ladies, and all for a brilliant cause.”

Three women, Tahira Riaz, Nasima Khatun, and Zenab Memon Khan, ~were each named Bollychicks’ Unique Friend, Business Woman and Unsung Heroine respectively.

Cllr Hussain presented the triumphant ladies with their prizes.
