We've got some great news, our events are back! Here's a quick roundup of what our amazing events teams and volunteers have been up to:
Giving Hope to Lebanon:
On the 29th August, the day of Ashura, we encouraged people, far and wide, to get active and take part in a sponsored 5-mile walk in their local park.
Mash’Allah, we had 23 participants who took part and collectively raised £6323 so far, which will provide 79 families with emergency food parcels! A massive well- done to everyone who took part in our event and a big shout out to our top fundraiser, Sadiya Harji from Canada who raised a whopping £1317.50!
Stars in Our Eyes:
We wanted to thank you to superstar fundraisers, this year, who rose to the challenge to help rebuild the lives of our struggling Yemeni Brothers and sisters: young Hayaa Fatimah Tahir, aged 11 and Imaan Fatimah Tahir, aged 5 from Bradford took part in a skipping challenge and raised £2100, Hamza Yusuf Hussain, aged 8, who walked 8km in the heat of Istanbul and raised £640 so far!
We also wanted to give a big shout out to young Layla, aged 5 took part in a 5-mile walk for Lebanon and has raised an incredible £640

One of our previous participants for our walk wanted to share why he got involved to inspire others to join him:
'Being part of such a worthy endeavour is truly uplifting and inspiring; participating side by side with people unified in our goal of helping those in need. As a parent, we all strive endlessly to ensure our children are safe and provided for - we cannot imagine a world where injustice would affect them' - Sofian
