Atif works as a full time Secondary School Teacher at Sir Harry Smith Community College, Whittlesey, Peterborough. Since October 2005, Atif has worked very hard to raise money for charity which is why I would like to nominate him to carry the Olympic Flame. He does this both at school and in his personal free time.
In 2005, Atif set up a non-profiting organisation called Peterborough's Active Youth (P.A.Y) which to date has raised over £55,000 for various charities. Poor people across the world have benefited from his hard work. Atif has raised money for the victims of the Pakistan Earthquake Appeal (2005) and Pakistan Flood Appeal (2010), Japan Tsunami victims (2010), Clic Sargent - a UK Children's Cancer charity (2010), just to name a few. Atif spends alot of his free time organising events such as football leagues and tournaments and charity dinners. At the moment, while fasting, he is busy raising money for the East Africa Famine Appeal.
At School, Atif is an inspiration and a role model to his students instilling the value of the importance of going the extra mile for poor people. Students look up to him and follow his lead to raise money for the less fortunate.
Atif has already been recognised for his charity work very early in his journey of charity work. In 2005, he was nominated for the local newspaper (Evening Telegraph) prestigious award 'Fundraiser of theYear'. Atif came runner up in this award category.
In Summary, i believe atif deserves this honour.
