Christmas lunch to be sponsored by local investors.
Birmingham Press Club’s popular Christmas Lunch is this year being sponsored by the Solihull-based Shakur Investment Group. It will take place on 12th December at Park Regis Hotel, Birmingham.
Shakur Investment Group focuses its investments on existing and profitable SMEs in real estate, healthcare and acquisition-driven businesses, and its network includes over 150 property developers across the UK. Launched in 2017, it has a 25-strong team of professionals including brokers, architects, accountants and estate agents. In addition to managing the investment portfolios of its clients, the group also provides a range of property and investment-based consultancy.
Abdul Shakur (pictured), who founded the company, comes from a background of poverty and homelessness – circumstances that inspired him to establish a business aimed at enabling individuals and families to secure a brighter more prosperous future for themselves. Highly involved with community educational projects, Abdul is a coach at the Birmingham Youth Sports Academy, which brings young people from the inner city into football.
Birmingham Press Club chairman Llewela Bailey said: “We are delighted to establish a connection with Abdul and the Shakur Investment Group, which, in just six years, has emerged as one of our region’s business success stories.”
Providing the entertainment will be Nick Page, who reached the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and who was crowned English Comedian of the Year in 2018.
