The popular Lasan takeaway in Shotley was among a glittering array of businesses at the recent Suffolk BME Business Awards after being nominated in the Community Business of the Year category.
Although the Lasan did not pick up an award, owner Mohammed Ali earned the praise of many for the work he and Bodrul Islam do in supporting the Shotley community.
Part of the nomination read:
“Not only does the Lasan takeaway in Shotley make fantastically tasty and enjoyable food but the owners, Ali and Bodrul, are an integral part of the community. In addition to employing local people the Lasan has gained a positive reputation for supporting a number of community initiatives in a variety of ways.”
