Appointment of new Trustees
The Shropshire Islamic Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Trustees to replace retiring trustees Dr Muhajid Qureshi and Dr Shaukat Ali.
The new appointees will work with existing trustee Rashid Hussain, to progress future projects and work of SIF, including the funeral services, second storey build and façade remodelling of TCM at King Street. We hope to have the new trustees take up their roles on 1st September, subject to current administrative formalities with the CIO being completed.
We had a healthy response to the call for expressions of interest. After much deliberation and wider consideration of current and medium-term business needs, we are able to appoint to two of the advertised roles at this stage. Future charity needs may require additional trustees but, on this occasion, it was felt the needs of the charity could be met with a complement of three trustees. We thank all the applicants for taking time to apply and hope to utilise their enthusiasm and desire to serve the community and SIF in various volunteer roles.
