AwazFm received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – the equivalent of an MBE.

At a ceremony in the City Chambers, Lord Provost Bob Winter will present staff with a commemorative crystal obelisk and a certificate signed by the Queen.
He said: "The work of the volunteers at Awaz FM really impressed me and they are indeed deserving winners of the award.

"It really is refreshing to visit and witness the energy and commitment of everyone involved in this venture connecting with the Asian community through the airwaves."
Ali Malik, director of Awaz FM, said "We are delighted and honoured to be receiving such an award. Obviously it is the highest award any voluntary organisation can achieve.

"Awaz FM has been broadcasting to Glasgow’s Asian communities for eight years and it has been hard work.

"However, recognition like this makes it all worthwhile and lets us know we really are doing something right and that we are making a difference."

The station broadcasts in English, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi, Paharhi and Swahili providing entertainment, local and national news, and community information.
It also covers particular faiths including Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Islam.

Awaz FM works with many organisations including Glasgow City Council, Greater Glasgow Health Board Strathclyde Police and Strathclyde Fire and Rescue.
