After school club raises funds for Syria


When children at the after school club in Bradford started to brainstorm about how to raise money for a good cause they collectively arrived at an idea to host a spring bazaar.

Students and teachers from an after school club helped run stalls and activities with the hope to raise money for the people of Syria with the ‘Keep Syria Warm (Yorkshire)’ campaign.

The event organised by Raising Explorers, in Manningham, Bradford roped in the support of the Intouch Foundation and Al Hikmah project (Keighley) and managed to raise £2,750 for the cause.

The children at Raising Explorers who are based at the Carlisle Business Centre in Manningham were instrumental in making the day a true success. They were involved in planning and co-ordination as well as taking part.

Khalil Shah Manager from Raising Explorers said: “The turnout at the event was amazing especially considering the short space of time the event was put together. I would like to express my appreciation on behalf of the staff and students to the team at Carlisle Business Centre especially Dom for his efforts, the local community for their continued support.

“We had reached out to local businesses and asked for their partnership in making this event a success. We are in deep gratitude for the generosity of the local businesses who contributed in making the event the success it was.”
