A Family Fun Day was held on the 9th August 2016 at Hodge House in Nelson from 12 pm to 5 pm. The family event was organised by Minhaj- ul- Quran, Women League Nelson and was promoted through advertisement on the radio, distribution of leaflets across Nelson, posters, via whatsapp, as well as by word of mouth.
A great deal of organisation went into the arrangement of various activities and stalls to keep children entertained such as bouncy castle, football, face painting, henna, candy floss, chocolate fountain, toy stall and sweet and drinks stall. A wide variety of delicious food was successfully sold including somosas, pokaras, kebabs, burgers, dhai bara, chaat, biryani, pilau rice, sweet rice, cupcakes and pink tea. Stalls selling clothes, hijabs, shoes, jewellery, household items and bric-à-brac attracted a great deal of interest from those who attended.
The Fun Day was heralded a great success by approximately 250 men, women and children who attended. May Allah SubhanaTallah reward MWL Nelson, all volunteers and those who donated or contributed to make this event extremely successful.
