There is a growing Muslim community across Newbury and Thatcham, who need your help to raise money for purchasing a facility to be used as a Masjid, Education Centre & for Community Initiatives.
Currently, we are renting a sports hall to hold Jumma and various other facilities to carry out activities.
This community has over 600 Muslims and has been rapidly growing recently with families settling in and calling this ‘home’. We have many nationalities (British, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Egyptian, Moroccan and many more) and we have an urgent need to establish solid foundations for the Islamic and moral future of our children.
We have the following initiatives underway and welcome your support and involvement.
£1k Pledge Campaign:
We want to sign up 400 people who will pledge £1,000 which can be paid for up to a year. You can run events yourself or undertake collections from family and friends to achieve this target. We will also offer up any support if needed. If you are interested in making a pledge please get in touch. Alhamdullilah, we currently have 20 pledges already and this is the fastest way we think we can reach our target, so please ask family and friends if they would be willing to make a pledge.
UK Jumma Collections:
We will be looking to get other masjids to support us by allocating one Jumma collection towards our cause. Therefore if you able to support by asking your local masjid if they would be willing to raise on our behalf then get in touch.
Collection box Distribution:
We will be placing collection boxes in shops. If you have a local contact who would be willing to place one of our collection boxes then please also get in touch.
Family money box Campaign:
We will be distributing paper money boxes to local families to encourage them and their children to help raise money.
We will be looking to organise a number of different events to bring the community together but also to focus on raising funds.
Direct Debit and direct donations:
We will be looking for people to set up direct debit payments or a one of payment of their choice direct into our bank account of which the details can be found further below.
Newbury & Thatcham weekly Jumma Collection:
We will also be dedicating our weekly Jumma collections towards this cause.
