A Funday was held on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May 2015 organised by Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League Nelson. The ladies and children only event opened its doors from 11AM till 6PM on both days at Minhaj-ul-Quran Islamic Centre, Carr Road Nelson. The Funday was held due to popular demand by local women and children following previous similar extremely successful events held at the centre.
A whole variety of delicious freshly prepared homemade food was brought in to be sold on the food stalls on the first floor, including somosas, kebabs, chaat, pakoras, biryani, plaau, dahi baray, burger and chips, sweet rice and a selection of cupcakes. All the food was provided by The Minhaj Women League and was happily enjoyed by everyone who attended who also took food home for friends and family. Other popular stalls were the jewellery, household and islamic stall, shoe stall, several clothing stalls and even head massages were offered.
There was plenty of fun and excitement for the children including the very popular drinks, sweets and crisps stall, balloons, jumping around on the bouncy castle, a toy stall and face painting. The Henna/ mehndi stall proved popular amongst the women and girls who had their hands painted.
A large number of people attended across both days who thoroughly enjoyed themselves and left with positive feedback about the Fun-day. This was extremely encouraging news for the entire MWL team who showed there dedication in preparation, organisation and running of the two day event and are also extremely grateful to all those volunteered or participated in any way.
