WHAT IS SADAQA DAY?
“Sadaqa Day is one day of social action. Started in 2015, this year’s will take place on Sunday 26th March”. Individuals, community groups, mosques, women’s groups, schools and individual families can all get involved. Everyone can do something small or large and become part of a wider movement of activity in different parts of the country.
Faith in Action
Muslim communities in the UK are reported to be among the most generous groups. Millions of pounds are raised in charity each year, much of which is utilised for important relief aid and development in other countries. Emphasis on UK giving is stronger than ever with British Muslims wanting to see their charity benefitting people closer to home.
Volunteering at Half Marathon
Cooking for homeless shelter
Children from the Islamic school did a litter pick. Volunteers marshalled and ran in the local Park Run, cooked for the local homeless shelter, planted for hospice and local neighbours and collected food for the FoodBank.
