Charity description

WBMC logo
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 rooms at a community centre to hold Jumma and to carry out other initiatives.

This community has over 600 Muslims and the community has
been rapidly growing over the past few years with a lot more people now settling with their families. The great thing is that there
is such diversity in nationalities (Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Egyptian,
Moroccan, and many more), however the challenge we face is that we have an
urgent need to ensure we establish solid foundations for the future for the
sake of our children.

Our Vision is to have a facility where we can establish the
following services:

·Prayer facilities
·Ramadan activities
·Eid Celebration
·Islamic, Maths and English education for our children
·Community activities (Peace & Integration forum, homeless projects, community Iftar events, Muslim mentoring)
·Youth Club (football, cricket etc.)
·Social Activities (women’s circle, Family One dish event, Iftar events open to the wider communities)
·Representation within statutory services (police, ambulance, fire, NHS,housing associations, town council etc.)

We are looking to raise at least £400,000 so that we are in
a position to purchase either a building or acquire suitable land upon which to
build. Therefore we need everyone’s support and engagement to help us achieve
this objective.
