Very honoured to have Sital Raja-Arjan MBE as our Inspire Judge.
Sital Raja-Arjan MBE is a Bolton businesswoman and manager of iconic House of Raja’s – an Indian clothing and food business started by her parents. Under her leadership Sital has taken House of Raja’s to new heights. She is actively involved in promoting the Asian culture in Bolton and pulls in coach parties from all over Britain for curry tasting, cookery, saree sampling, and henna-painting demonstrations.
The House of Raja’s recently featured in a new ‘Taste of Harmony’ Cookbook by local not-for-profit organisation WiN, giving Sital the opportunity to work with some of the most talented chefs and cooks in Bolton.
Her kind nature and compassion for others really shines through in her charity work where Sital has shown a natural ability to not only raise money for her charities, but has managed to excite those around her to do the same, resulting in large donations and much more assistance going to those who need it.
Sital’s tireless efforts in promoting tourism in Bolton culminated in her being awarded an MBE in 2002. Sital continues to dedicate her time to The House of Rajas and her voluntary work in Bolton community.
