Helen Hamston, founder of the amazing website and Facebook community Mummy’s Gin Fund has surprised us with a wonderful heartfelt tribute to Asma and Peace of Cake by nominating her for a Pride of Britain Award. She’s nominated Asma for this reason
“Asma epitomizes all that is great about sisterhood, community and cohesion. She walks into rooms of people who are scared of her, want to hurt her, reject her beliefs, believe she should ‘go home’, think she is oppressed, blame her for terrorism and hate her. She walks in with her head held high and her arms outstretched. It doesn’t matter who she is talking to – she makes them feel equal and valued. Through her, our community is learning to embrace difference and our children are being taught that we are all the same. She is making the world a better place.”
