SELL-OUT IFTAAR WITH AMIR KHAN
Penny Appeal’s Family Iftaar in Luton on Friday 18th July was a great success with a sell-out audience of 500, who came along to meet a range of special guests including British Boxing Champion Amir Khan, and raise money for water projects worldwide.
The Iftaar was held at Venue Central in Luton and provided the perfect opportunity for families to break their fast in the company of some of the UK’s leading Muslim personalities and groups. On his first visit to the town, Amir Khan entertained the audience and gave an exclusive peek into his life so far.
Nasheed group Al Musafirun, and well-known personalities Abu Da’wah and Dawah Man completed the evening’s line-up with their wise words, beautiful recitation and moving nasheeds.
An equally important aspect of the event was the opportunity to raise funds for water solutions, such as water wells in Pakistan, and water tanks and filtration units in Gaza where clean water is scarce and desperately needed.
