On Friday 29 November 2013, several trustees and colleagues from the islamic foundation attended a fundraising dinner at the memory lane Banqueting hall in Bolton. the event was organised in conjunction with Brothers Yousuf Bhailok, Ahmed Sarodi Patel, Iqbal Soobah Aleef and Yusuf Mitha, and the evening was a great success, with numerous families and guests in attendance.
During the fundraiser, there were lectures and presentations given by journalist lauren Booth and other distinguished guests. one of the highlights of the evening was the recitation of the nasheed by ms Booth’s daughter, holly. everyone could not help but be deeply moved by the young girl’s contribution to the evening.
The event brought the educational work and da‘wah activities of the foundation to greater prominence within the muslim community in the north of england, and resulted in new benefactors that have pledged to support the islamic foundation through donations and monthly standing orders.
The Islamic Foundation is grateful to Yousuf Bhailok and his excellent team for the organisation and success of the prestigious event.
