On Saturday 22nd May WLIC were pleased to host their 12th consecutive Family Funday – a whole day community affair at the WLIC grounds that brought together BBQ, food stalls, kids rides, clothes and book stalls and other entertainment for everyone in the local area to enjoy. WLIC are pioneers of this initiative, having first organised such events back in 1997. With much advertising, many local residents also attend.
The event brought together around 2000 visitors throughout the day, of whom a portion volunteered their precious time to take part in the WLIC Fundraising Committee User Feedback Survey – a comprehensive user questionnaire that sampled the opinions and aspirations of a range of WLIC users concerning the masjid services and proposed future masjid development.
Alhumdullilah, thanks to the hard work of all WLIC staff and volunteers, the generosity of sponsors, stall holders and guests, over £15,000 was raised - all donated for the benefit of the future WLIC masjid redevelopment project.
