Our Inter-faith iftar event at Newstead Wood School was a success. These gatherings serve as invaluable opportunities for communities to come together and foster understanding of the diversity present in different faiths. It was indeed an honour to host Yusuf Chambers as our special guest, who was an ambassador for Mercy to Humanity, a revert to Islam, a fundraiser who has delivered lots of humanitarian work.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all our esteemed guest speakers:

Gunita Chitkara, representing the Hindu faith
Andrew McClellan, representing the Christian faith
Flora Spiegel, representing the Jewish faith

Special recognition is also due to Tayeeba Ahmed for her captivating poetry performance

We extend our gratitude to all our sponsors, including , , , .restaurant, , , , ,

and . Your support made this event possible.

Special appreciation also goes out to our caterers, Tabaq Catering and , for providing delicious food and ensuring the success of the evening.

Thank you to our Newstead Wood Islamic society, all the volunteers and the amazing parents at our school. A big thank you to all our staff that helped and got involved.
