Hyde Park Big Lunch / Sadaqa Day

What do you get if you invite Christians, Muslims, Jews, local people of faith and no faith to a Big Lunch / Sadaqa Day event on a snowy Sunday afternoon in March?

Well, it’s snow joke but it was fun, educational, emotional and very warm!

A Sadaqa Day is a Muslim day of social action and this time we were honoured to be able to host the event at All Hallows sharing food, getting to know each other better and hearing about some of the issues that our brothers and sisters experience as our Muslim neighbours. Adam shared with us the craziness of certain hateful people and Shahab’s brilliant response of “Love A Muslim Day” on April 3rd.

We also heard from Leeds No Borders about their work with refugees and asylum seekers, how we might help and we wrote to our MPs in support of the fasting “prisoners” at Yarl’s Wood detention centre.

A little bit of Craftivism!

Despite the snow and ice there was a great turn out and we all made new friends. A great afternoon!
