Mosque raises over £500 for MacMillan in "Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning"

Great to see that one of the organisations participating in the Macmillan ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ events on Friday 27 September was the "Muslim Cultural Centre Wollaton".

The MCCW event was organised by Saema Mohammad and the "Mums and Tots" group at the centre. A report by Saema on the NCVS blog describes how all the planning paid off when they opened up the centre to the whole local community and "...were overwhelmed by the amount of people who came walking through the doors to help us raise funds for Macmillan..."

Mmmm. Cakes....

Saema estimated that they sold cakes and drinks to some 200people at the event, and raised a whopping £517.43 for MacMillan on the day.

Da Kids Had Fun !

Saema comments that "There were many happy people and lots of smiles on the day. A memorable comment during the event was hearing a little girl say much fun she was having! As well as simply having cakes and tea and coffee on sale, we had organised activities for children such as crafts, face painting and henna artistry. And as for the cakes – well, everyone was spoilt for choice with a wide range of scrumptious offering donated by many many talented bakers!", adding that "I also really enjoyed introducing and showing people from other faith backgrounds the mosque set up – the artefacts in the mosque, and how the imam leads the prayer."
