FORMER Featherstone Rovers winger Ikram Butt has been named as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust.

Butt (pictured), who scored 66 tries in 168 appearances for Rovers between 1990 and 1995, founded the British Asian Rugby Association (BARA).

He has been recognised by the British Asian Trust for his fund-raising efforts on behalf of the Pakistan Recovery Fund which assists victims of the devastating floods over the past two years.

The British Asian Trust was founded in 2009 by a group of British Asian business leaders at the suggestion of HRH Prince Charles.
