Atul Pathak

Atul Pathak Community Awards

The Atul Pathak Community Awards provide annual one-off donations of between £250 and £2,000 and a year-long corporate partnership to registered charities and community groups. The Atul Pathak Community Awards are designed to support smaller charities in local communities where our restaurants operate. A list of these can be found here.

What are the Atul Pathak Community Awards?

The 2016 Atul Pathak Community Awards were the third annual awards scheme designed not only to support community groups but also to highlight and celebrate the work that community groups do in their local areas.

As with previous years we have decided that we want to go even further in support of the good work that community groups do and focus the work in local communities by forming year-long partnerships with community groups, offering not just much needed financial support but also capacity support throughout the year.

Following on from our first awards in 2014, each year Appt Corporation hosts an awards and drinks reception in a London landmark venue. The winners receive a financial contribution to their organisation and a ‘Community Contract’ signed by Managing Director of Appt Corporation, Atul Pathak, with a pledge that his company will support them for the ensuing year.

 The fourth awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday 21st June 2017 on the Terrace of the House of Commons.

Who can apply?

We believe that operating a business and being socially responsible are inextricably linked; that it is our duty to give something back to the community with whom we have built a relationship over the years. With this in mind, the awards will be prioritised to those charities and community groups who work or are based within the local communities of our 29 restaurants based in north, west and central London as well as in Berkshire:

We will prioritise applications from charities who deliver their operations near to our restaurants and within the following London Boroughs and boroughs surrounding London in particular:
