His Honour Judge John Bullimore

      John was a barrister in Leeds having being called to the bar in

Mr Yaqub Masih

      Yaqub has made a great contribution towards the life of the
      church in this country through his role as secretary of the Asian
      Christian Fellowship. He has organised receptions to raise the
      profile of the Fellowship, and of Asian Christianity more
      generally, in the wider world – including in the House of Lords.
      He has worked tirelessly for this cause and has been an immense
      help with our link with the Diocese of Faisalabad in Pakistan.
