SCLT Senior Minority outreach Team Celebrate Eid with Ahmadi Muslim Community
Sunday 16th July 2017 has seen a delegation of SCLT volunteers travel to the Park Lane Hotel in Cardiff, to join members of the Ahmadiyyan Muslim Community and distinguished guests to celebrate the end of the Islamic period of Ramadan.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims throughout the United Kingdom.
Mr Roger Ibrahim is the Lead Volunteer with the SCLT Senior Minority Outreach Team. He attended the event as a guest of the Ahmadi community with his colleagues, he said, “Eid is a time when members of the Islamic faith gather together to rejoice at the end of the period of Ramadan and to celebrate their faith in the Eid feast. It has been an opportunity for the Senior Minority Team to meet up with old friends from the Ahmadi community and to look forward to the year ahead"

Coming here to this wonderful event really does feel like sharing a very special occasion with old friends
The Ahmadiyyan Muslim Community have been fantastic supporters of the SCLT Charity and we are always delighted to share these special moments with our greatest sponsers and friends"
Mr Ashley Jones , a long-standing volunteer with the SCLT Charity, was invited to say a few words to the gathered celebrants of the Eid festival about the recent success of the charity in the United Nations Public Service Awards, which were held in The Hague in the Netherlands, he said, “I just wanted to take the opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to the Ahmadiyyan Muslim Community for their unstinting support for our charity over the last 5-years. This has allowed us the scope to grow and expand our services and to keep ever more vulnerable, older adults safe from the many scams and frauds that they find themselves targetted by every day
It has been our pleasure to bring along the wonderful trophy that we received and also the certificate which marked our success in the World's most prestigious international award for rendering public service to the community. The generosity of our Ahmadi friends has been instrumental in this success and today is a chance for us to say a big thank you! "
