From a young age charity work has always played a significant part in my life. My hero and late father, Mohammed Rashid, was an unstoppable force when it came to charity work, always giving whatever time and energy he could spare to those less fortunate and I’m proud to say this legacy has left its mark on me too. I have now made it my mission and passion to help better the community we live in and organise fundraising events for the charities that have touched my heart.
The most recent of which is Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice who provide specialist palliative and neurological care for people facing a frightening and life-changing diagnosis, helping to support the family and friends effected too. After losing family members and friends to cancer – I wanted to do what I could to help support this amazing charity and as a result held our first fundraising event for Manorlands in 2016.
Our charity night is only made possible due to the huge team of volunteers and performers, this year’s performers include – Natural Rhythm Band, Albion Street Band, Northwind Tribal Belly Dancers, Eddie Hindle Magician/MC Rapper and all the local Dance Groups/Singers/Tribute Acts. Thank you to Josh “Sound Boi” for organising the PA system and to Carla Dewell who is donating her hair to The Little Princess Trust and raising money for Manorlands Hospice and a massive thank you to all the businesses, who just like my father, give what they can, whenever they can to make it a huge success! Every year we aim to raise more than the previous year and would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved for supporting my vision and raising crucial funds that Manorlands needs to stay open.
