The Asian Sunday newspaper is marking 6 years since it launched in August 2011.
The newspaper was launched at Bradford City Hall, on 5 August 2011 which was attended by members of the Bradford community.
From the beginning, Asian Sunday set a bench mark within the Asian print media industry by offering a publication which focused on issues affecting British Asians living and working in the UK, with a particular vision to reach out to the wider community to offer a platform to learn more about the British Asian community’s interests, aspirations, business and lifestyle in the UK.
Asian Sunday has always been at the forefront of breaking news affecting the Bradford community and the Asian community at large.
Speaking about the anniversary founder Fatima Patel said: “When I first launched Asian Sunday I knew it would appeal to the Bradford community, however, as our journey progressed I didn’t envisage an obstacle which would leave me out of work for many months. They were tough times, which with support, commitment and lots of hard work saw us through and here we are celebrating our sixth year.
“I am incredibly proud of my team, our sponsors, our advertisers and all the agencies who have been working with us over the past six years and hope to continue building on those relations. It also gives me immense pleasure that I will be returning full time as the Editor for the Asian Sunday from the anniversary issue.
“Our anniversary celebrations will be kicking off later this week, with various events and editorial initiatives still to come, one of which will be a competition where a lucky reader trip for two to Dubai. So do keep following and supporting our work”
