On Sunday 22nd August 2021, Minhaj-ul-Quran International Walsall held a fundraising event to raise money for the construction of the new Masjid Hall. This was led by MWL, Walsall, and supported by MQI, Walsall.
A hugely successful event that saw the local and wider community come together. A range of stalls offering food, clothes, toys, Islamic art, personalized gifts, and much more attracted the young and old alike. There was plenty to keep children entertained; from the traditional face painting, mehndi, and a bouncy castle right through to activities organized by the Youth Team at MQI Walsall who were offering archery, bowling, basketball, a skipping competition, and an Islamic quiz.
We were overwhelmed by the generosity and support of our sponsors, which without this fundraiser couldn’t have taken place. Thank you to those sponsors and supporters who donated food, drink, and equipment to ensure the smooth running of the event. Special recognition to volunteers from the local community who gave up their time to offer their help.
An event that was not only successful in raising a huge amount but also one that was successful in bringing together and making links with people from a range of backgrounds, demonstrating the true spirit and ethos of MQI.
