“Roxy has been with us for over 3 years, it almost feels like she’s been here with us since the beginning, with her chatty and vivacious personality, it’s never a dull moment when she’s around, and not to mention the amazing food she brings us in!
Roxy’s parents came over from Azad Kashmir Pakistan back in the 1960’s, Roxy is one of five children, she’s the third born, she’s two brothers and two sisters, whom she remains extremely close to. Roxy was born in Bradford in 1969, after moving around the UK several times with her father’s restaurant business, her family made a forever home in Stoke-on-Trent.
She’s two grown up sons, Alishaan & Usmaan, both of which got married last year, even during a pandemic! But more importantly she’s just welcomed her first grandchild Aayah, who is perfectly beautiful.
Roxy is a dedicated Muslim, she takes her faith extremely serious. She’s proud of her heritage and religious beliefs, and we’re equally as proud to have her as a member of our team.”
