The bigger picture…
Over the years, Ashok has been passionate about being involved and this has led to him organising a variety of public and charitable events.
Asian Music Festival
In 1997 he organised the first ever open-air Asian Music Festival with international stars on the grounds of Henley Royal Regatta with a view to creating an Asian version of the Henley Royal Regatta. The event ran for 5 years attracting over 3500 people every year, but foundered when air travel restrictions and complications made it difficult for international stars to arrive on time for the event.
Nkokonjeru Masters Cup
In 2007 he launched the biggest amateur golf event in North London – attracting just under 300 players participating on the same day across 4 different courses. The event was organised for and on behalf of Freemasons.
It ran for 8 years and became the most talked about golf event in the area. Over the years the event raised almost £100,000 for the Freemasons Lodge.
Marathon Walk for Consortium for Street Children
In 2014 Ashok organised the Marathon Walk for the Consortium for Street Children in Windsor to raise funds. Having raised substantial funds for the Charity the event was finally discontinued due to escalating business demands.
