Calling Britain’s top Ghanaians

WINNER: Oxford graduate Gillian Appau with her GUBA Award for being a top student

AN AWARDS scheme that gives recognition to the contribution of Ghanaians in British society is searching for new nominees.

The Ghana UK-based Achievement (GUBA) Awards, now in its fourth year, recognises individuals and organisations which have produced significant work in the community.

Organisers have made an open call for the public to vote for those they feel deserve a special mention.

This year, the non-profit organisation has included new categories such as Fashion Fusion Designer of the Year and Unsung Hero of the Year.

Other awards include the Business of the Year, the Young Entrepreneur of the Year and the Ghanaian Association of the Year.

Supported by current patrons British actor Hugh Quarshie and sprinter Jeanette Kwakye, the not-for-profit GUBA Awards donates all proceeds to charitable schemes operating within the Ghanaian community.

Its work has been endorsed by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Diane Abbott MP and FIFA boss Sepp Blatter.

n To nominate, visit www.gubaawards.co.uk/nominations before the end of June
