Swafia Collection for Wakefield Hospice
As in previous years we will be joining other Wakefield mosques to raise funds for a very deserving cause, Wakefield Hospice, who provide support and care for terminal patients at the end of their life.
Please be generous with your donations at our collection after Jumma prayers on Friday 30th of August. Lets try to improve on the total raised last year by all mosques of £1885.
Swafia Mosque is inviting everyone to our open day. You may be religious or follow no religion. If you have never seen inside a mosque now is your chance. All are welcome to come and look around the mosque and ask questions about Islam. You can go on a short tour to see some of the features of the mosque. It will be a general Fun Day of other activities and stalls to raise funds for a very worthy cause.
Maybe you are curious about what goes on inside a mosque. How do Muslims pray ? Why does the mosque have a dome or minarets ? What do Muslim kids learn in the madrassa ? Why do Muslims fast ? What do Muslims say about Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) ? Now is your chance to get your questions answered directly by local Muslims in Wakefield.
It will also be a general Fun Day with a bouncy castle for children, henna tattoos, face painting, and food stalls. Other organisations will have information stands. We’re hoping it will be a sunny day so you will be able to make use of the ice cream van.
This year we will be raising funds for a new initiative, Iqra Senior Sisters. As people become older especially as pensioners they may find it more difficult to get out of the home to meet people. Iqra Senior Sisters is especially aimed at senior ladies and will provide activities and support for regular gatherings to meet and socialise so they feel less lonely stuck at home. Some of the proceeds from stalls as well as general donations, and proceeds from the Tombola will go towards this worthy cause, so please be generous.
The funds raised at our last Open Day in 2018 were added to sums collected at Friday prayers at Swafia and other Wakefield mosques to get a grand total of £1885 which were donated to a very important cause at Wakefield Hospice.
We will be providing free tea and coffee and you will be able to sample some food.
You can see some photos from last years Open Day below.
Some details on our posters below.
