Local charity Creating Memories is set to get 15 minutes of fame courtesy of Noreen Khan, the award-winning BBC radio and TV presenter, as she braves the famous black chair as part of the latest series of Celebrity Mastermind.
Perhaps best known for presenting the weekday afternoon slot on the BBC Asian Network, Bedford-born Ms Khan has one of the most listened to Asian radio shows in the UK and can also add compere and stand-up comedienne to her burgeoning list of talents.
Ms Khan chose to nominate Creating Memories as her charity of choice because of her strong ties to Bedford and the local children and families who will benefit.
Ms Khan, said: “Having been born and raised in Bedford, I really wanted to help a charity that was from my hometown. Creating Memories is a wonderful charity that helps to fulfil the wishes of children with life-limiting or terminal illness. Creating those moments of joy are so crucial during what can be such a difficult time and is something that this charity does so well.”
Pritti Saggi, Founder of Creating Memories, said: “When I heard that Creating Memories had been nominated as the chosen charity I was astounded! I’m so grateful to Noreen for our nomination and I can’t wait to watch her in action and find out what happens when the show airs.”
