#1D: One Direction fans raise $10K for British Asian Trust to mark Zayne's B'Day

Fans of the blockbuster boy band One Direction, it appears, aren’t just a several million-strong bunch of screaming teen girls given to bouts of fainting at the mere sight of Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall or Zayne.

A group of fans have managed to raise more than $10,000 for the British Asian Trust (BAT) to mark the 22nd birthday of 1D band member Zayne Malik, who is an Ambassador for the Trust.

Malik, who is British Pakistani origin, celebrated his birthday on 12 January but donations have continued to pour in going past $11,000 on the fundraising drive’s Just Giving page.

The Trust, which was founded in 2007 at the behest of Prince Charles, will use the funds to fund charities in the education, health and livelihood sectors across South Asia.

Hitan Mehta, Executive Director of the British Asian Trust, said: "We thank One Direction fans for their generous contributions.  We are honoured to have Zayn Malik as part of our British Asian Trust family; he is a young man with immense talent and a dedicated following.  Our celebrity ambassadors have been champions for our causes and have helped us unlock the potential of the poor and vulnerable in South Asia.”

The 1D fans’ effort comes just weeks before the British Asian Trust’s Annual Dinner, to be held on 3 February in Central London.

This year’s event will be attended by the likes of Tennis legend Boris Becker, Goodness Gracious Me star Sanjeev Bhaskar, Today programme host Mishal Husain and filmmaker Gurinder Chadha.
