Raising Explorers raising funds
Families from all over Bradford visited the Carlisle Business Centre earlier this month as a youth club helped raise more than £2,000 for charity.
‘Raising Explorers’, an Ofsted regulated after-school learning and childcare club, hosted their own Spring Bazaar in Manningham, with stalls and activities run by students and teachers.
The event was organised with the hope of raising funds for the ‘Keep Syria Warm’ campaign which looks to help the millions affected in the war-ravished country.
Children who attend Raising Explorers, which is based at the Carlisle Business Centre, were instrumental in making the day a true success helping to ensure everything ran smoothly.
A number of stalls were on show in the special bazaar which included, amongst others, a variety of clothes stalls, a bouncy castle and face painting. Even food stalls were set up to ensure shoppers could try different snacks as well as food and delicacies ranging from a chocolate fountain to spongy cakes.
Entertainment during the event included a performance of Nasheeds by the children; which they had been preparing for in the run up to the event.
In total, the event, organised in partnership with Intouch Foundation & al Hikmah project, raised £2,750 for the cause.
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.
“The turnout was tremendous, with hundreds of local people in attendance throughout the duration.
“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.”
