British Citizen Award

January 2021: Mukesh Malhotra has been awarded The British Citizen award


For nearly 20 years Mukesh has volunteered within his community and has been instrumental in the fight to end Polio. Mukesh is currently Director & Chair of ThamesBank Credit Union, an unpaid role.  This is a financial cooperative owned solely by members to provide a safe place for savings and access to loans. Mukesh also speaks regularly at colleges and universities on Third Sector topics such as credit unions, food banks, rough sleeping and cyber security.

Through his involvement with the Hounslow Rotary, he has introduced ‘Rotary World’s Greatest Meal to Help End Polio’, which globally has helped save over 16.5 million children from Polio worldwide.  Mukesh is also Trustee of the UK arm a water charity called Roll Out The Barrel, whose primary aim is to transport clean water, that ‘last mile’ from the water pump or borehole using 35 litre water barrels which can be pushed or rolled rather than carried. 

In addition to the above, he is Trustee of Disability Network Hounslow, supporting people with physical, sensory or mental impairments living and working in Hounslow through providing advice, information and advocacy. Throughout all Mukesh’s voluntary work, he has helped many communities both locally and nationally. 

Nominator: Sarah Gardner
