“It’s a great pleasure to attend the British Kebab Awards, where for once a good grilling is very much appreciated by the politicians! A very special thanks to Ibrahim Dogus for continuing to champion this vital industry that I know only too well has faced its challenges but also responded to those challenges over the last few years.
All of the nominees have done so well in getting recognised for their efforts and we all know the secret to an excellent weekend has a kebab at the centre of it. Whether shish, doner, lamb, chicken, mixed it doesn’t matter, what matters is the support that all of us as customers give to their local kebab shop and I know everyone here has cemented themselves at the centre of their community through the universal love of the kebab to be here tonight.
So thank you for all that you do in keeping us well-fed either as a takeaway, a dine-in or a delivery, whichever part of the country you’re from and regardless of the results I hope you all have a fantastic evening of sampling the best of the British kebab.”
