Successful Open Iftar Event

Our Open Iftar Night Kitchen event went very well at Moor Theater Deli on Friday 19th June as part of their Refuge Festival.  We estimate that around 60 people came and ate with us.  There was also plenty of people who took part in the activities including a radish carving competition and samosa making workshop.  We started the meal with dates and water as a traditional breaking of the fast ritual.  We had a sparkling yogurt drink with mint, chicken curry, dahl and rice for the main course and finished the meal with fruit and ice cream.  We are grateful to Seven Hills Bakery for their donation.  We would also like to thank the British Red Cross for their donation of £25.00.  As always, we are grateful to our funder, Big Lottery, Awards For All.

We had great feedback from our guests who came from multiple different countries and also many from the UK.  Phil, pictured below with Sampson from Ghana says “A very enjoyable evening as I had the opportunity to meet and talk to a number of people from accross the world including from Ghana, Uganda, Somalia and Kenya.”
