Rayaan Sheikh, 43, Pakistan

“When I think of home, it’s of a simple life. A happy life."

"I was brought up in Lahore and I have so many good memories of growing up there. Perhaps my best memory was of playing cricket all day in the park until it was too dark to see. Then, of course, there was eating Naan Channa at Lakshmi Chowk. It was the best of times.

I left Lahore in 2006, when I brought my family over to settle in the UK. We have a good life here, but I never forget Lahore. So I like to share my good fortune with my family back in Pakistan. I send money whenever I can, just to make life a little easier for them. They never ask. They don’t have to.”
