Itihaas Director Matin Khan has been honoured by Midlothian and East Lothan Chamber of Commerce as a ‘Local Hero.’
The award was presented for his extensive work in the community. Itihaas sponsors many local sports clubs and social organisations, and Matin has raised substantial amounts for charity.
His certificate was handed over at the Chamber’s annual Enterprise Exhibition and Awards ceremony at the Roslin Institute by Jo Robinson, Editor of the Midlothian Advertiser and East Lothian News, and Arthur Johnston, Chairman of The Business Partnership.
“We regard the award as a badge of honour,” said Matin. “It shows the importance which Itihaas attaches to its role in community life in and around Midlothian and East Lothian.
“Our reputation for serving the finest Asian food attracts customers from far afield but local people are the basis of our business and we try to play an active part in many aspects of their lives.”
