A fundraising day at Amina Muslim Women’s Resource Centre (MWRC) in Govanhill attracted over 100 people and raised £1,000.

The day included bowling, bouncy castles, face painting, henna, beauticians, massage, food, toys, gifts, clothes and advice on many issues.

Impact Arts provided free art workshops for adults and children.

Asma Abdalla, Acting Director of the Centre said: ‘We are really pleased with the turnout. The funds raised will be reinvested in the project. I would like to thank everybody who attended and all the people and organisations that helped out on the day.’

Amina provides culturally sensitive services, which include befriending, counselling, helpline and advocacy to women all over Scotland.

It took three months to organise the event, which was co-ordinated by Sofi Parveen and two Global Exchange Volunteers Vicky and Mima.

Amina MWRC are always looking for new volunteers. If you would like to get involved phone 0141 585 8026 or email:
