Jannat is the company’s administrator by day and photographer the rest of the time – so expect to see a camera in her hand at a few 30 Chapel Street meetings and events. Jannat plays grassroots cricket at Park Avenue in Bradford as part of a women’s charity, an amazing way to encourage people, especially women/girls from all backgrounds and ages to get involved in more male-dominated sports. Jannat is also involved in community radio, at Radio Sangam, which she’s come to find it is an extraordinarily personal way to communicate and reach out effectively to the local area.
