What’s your name and where are you based?

Meena Morjaria, Leicester

When did you become a trustee?

In 2013

What is your area of expertise?

Having worked in the pharmaceutical industry for nearly 10 years, my expertise lies in account management, developing strong professional relationships within my sector, maximising business opportunities in specialist medical fields and working in partnership with the NHS.

My passion, drive and motivation in my career extend to helping those less fortunate. I have supported other charities in the past and I have been involved in many large fundraising events and also helped grow awareness of those in need of support.

How did you become involved?

I became aware of the home through Ranjit and Reena (co-founders and Trustees) and had attended one of their charity fundraising events. It definitely struck a chord with me, being female and also having roots from Punjab. I truly commend the charity for bridging the gap between the Bibi Prakash Kaur Ji and those in the UK who want to help. There are so many worthy charities out there and it’s such an individual choice to who you give your time and money to.  For me, it’s the dedication by the home itself, my fellow trustees and knowing what a difference we make to these girls’ lives that drives me to support this cause.

Tell us something unusual about yourself?

I have been interviewed by the BBC…not as glamorous as it sounds!!  It was at a family wedding for a well-known cultural programme aired on Sunday mornings.
