On Thursday 1st October 2020 we are celebrating our 11 year anniversary through our biggest and best ABC Annual Awards Dinner at the High Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 5HN. Our speakers and entertainment reflect the significance of our celebration.

For the past eleven years ABC has helped connect, support and promote a wide range of individuals and organisations. Our successes include delivering a broad series of training programmes that help businesses and individuals grow. Working with various institutes, we have delivered employability programmes, education initiatives, community activities and a whole lot more, all in an effort to improve life choices and enhance life chances of all our people within the North East.

The event will be filled with fun and celebration. Alongside the dinner there will be awards presented to Asian businesses and individuals for their significant and sustained contribution to the social and economic well-being of the North East. 

Tickets are only £85 each or £800 for tables of 10 and include a 4 course authentic Punjabi meal with a proportion of ticket sales being donated to the PIE Charity. All organisations or individuals taking a table will be included within promotional material.


Anne-Marie Trevelyan

Anne-Marie Trevelyan was first elected MP for the Berwick-upon-Tweed constituency at the 2015 general election and lives in the constituency with her family. The constituency is large and predominantly rural, covering over 1,000 square miles of north Northumberland from Hartburn in the south, to the Scottish border, and includes large parts of Northumberland National Park, the Coquet Valley, Holy Island and the historic towns of Alnwick and Berwick.

A chartered accountant by trade, Anne-Marie, during the 2015 Parliament, she sat on the House of Commons’ Public Accounts Committee where she was committed to ensuring taxpayers’ money is spent well in ways which are accountable to the public. Anne-Marie has also served as Minister for Procurement and Minister for the Armed Forces at the Ministry of Defence, and is presently Secretary of State for International Development.

Her other areas of interest and topics of campaigns include rural broadband, dualling the A1, continuing to bring investment to north Northumberland, and the Armed Forces Covenant. 

Her wider interests involve spending time with her family, making the most of the incredible landscape her vast and varied constituency affords and putting her passion for singing to good use by taking part in Signing for Syrians concerts in Westminster.
