We were delighted to welcome our friends from MC-UK (My Community UK) who came to celebrate Eid ul Abna, which marks the end of the annual Hadj (pilgrimage to Mecca) for Muslims.
They brought us gifts of food to mark the occasion. They also donated mutton and lamb for the Café. All the meat dishes at the Community Café are halal, which reflects the fact that 50% of our service users are Muslim.
We try and celebrate all the major faith festivals at the Community Café. It will soon be Diwali (the Hindu Festival of Light), and after that Christmas – with Halal turkey!!!
