Superhero Funday manages to raise more than £2500 to aid Syrian families

Redditch Editorial 18th Jul, 2018   0

A ‘SUPERHERO Funday’ where children and adults dressed up in their favourite costumes, managed to raise more than £2500 to aid Syrian families.

The event took place on Sunday July 15 between 12pm and 5pm at the Abbeydale Community Club.

From Spiderman to Wonder-Woman to Batman, everyone was dressed to impress.

All of the money raised from the event is going towards organiser Nazia Parveen’s trip to Turkey.

She will be hand-packing and delivering food parcels to Syrian families in camps in Reyhanli.

“The families which I will visit in the camps have fled from horrible wars and I just want to help in anyway I can.

“I have set up a JustGiving page too so that I can raise money for food packages.”

The cost of a food package is £23 and that will feed a family for one month.

The event raised money through the various food stalls, drinks, toy and artwork which was for sale.

There was also a raffle and an auction.

“It was an amazing day and I can’t wait to help in Turkey.
