It’s a time when participants practice personal introspection, prayer and fasting. During this time, Muslims are expected to fast from dawn till dusk each day, until the end of the month when Eid celebrations begin.
The event, held at popular Indian restaurant The Chilli Lounge, brought together over 90 local business people together, with raffle prizes kindly donated from staff members and companies across Huddersfield.
Receiving the quality award demonstrates that an organisation values volunteers and offers them a high quality, positive experience. Volunteering Kirklees were delighted to present The Welcome Centre with this award. The assessment panel were particularly impressed with the training and induction provided to volunteers and how they are kept up to date and involved with The Welcome Centre. The assessor really enjoyed her visit and it was clear that volunteers were supported and valued at The Welcome Centre.
The Welcome Centre was delighted last week to receive an unexpected donation of £10,000. The donation was brought down to the Lord Street centre and presented to Lada Rotshtein, Volunteer Coordinator and volunteer Mandy.
