Sister's Food n Fun Event: November 2014

 

Shakhsiyah Community responded to the request by some mothers that meeting points for young mothers during the school day are rare.  The idea of a brunch and a ‘bring and buy’ sale or ‘food and fun’ became a reality on a cold November day in 2014. Despite the forecast of rain outdoors - doors were open to all at Dawson House for the day. It was a cosy and welcoming set up of a bazaar and brunch. Most mums love a cup of tea and slice of cake or samosa; hence a scrumptious spread of food cooked by our mums from Shakhsiyah Schools was laid out. Delectable home baked muffins and sweet dishes as well as savoury foods such as pasta, biryani and sandwiches were on offer for the ladies arriving.

 

Aside from food stalls, a ‘baby market’ provided preloved baby items to support young mums. Items ranging from books and toys to baby rockers were on offer at bargain prices. There were also preloved scarves and jilbabs on offer. Furthermore some sisters donated heavily by donating their own jilbabs, purchasing others not for themselves but to send on via a local charity to sisters in Syria who are in dire situation at present.  Unsold clothing was taken to Dignity Islamic Shop in Slough to be shipped across to those needier. The atmosphere was filled with sisterhood and a great opportunity for us to explain the purpose and aims of Shakhsiyah Community.

 

Ladies Quiz Event: February 2014

After much popular demand, our long awaited second Ladies Quiz event was held one afternoon in February 2014. We had a turnout of about fifty sisters who worked their brain cells through ten rounds of questions on various subjects such as General Knowledge, Sport, Food & Drink and Quran. After an hour and a half of battling wits, the winning team was announced and each team member from the winning team was presented with a prize donated by Khimaar Online

 

Celebrating the Muslimah: May 2013

 

 

A ladies only fundraising evening was held in May 2013 at the beautiful banqueting venue of Abbey Manor in West London. The event celebrated the dignity of the Muslim woman through presentations and fashion shows of Islamic clothing featuring Khimaar Online and Concept to Reality. There were a range of fashion, health and beauty stalls. The evening closed with an incredible auction of spectacular pieces of Islamic Art including paintings, calligraphy and jewellery. The event was supported by Sapna Caterers who provided a delicious three course meal.

 

 

Ladies Quiz Night: February 2013

Saturday 23rd February saw Shakhsiyah Community’s very first Ladies Quiz Night. We had a turnout of about 70 sisters who worked their brain cells through ten rounds of questions on various subjects such as Sport, Food & Drink and Qur’an. After an hour and a half of battling wits the winning team was announced and ironically they had already chosen the team name 'The Winners'! Each team member of the winning team was presented with a prize kindly donated by Khimaar Online. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and particularly the sumptuous three course meal provided by Sapna Caterers. The words on everyone's lips now are...When is the next Ladies Quiz Night?
