Personal Challenge - Boat race
I have decided to join Eden Care Boat race team in this years amazing Dragon Boat Race, organised by Al-Noor Foundation. I certainly home it will be a great day out but also a brilliant way to get really active and raise money for a good cause at the same time.
I am helping Eden Care raising funds for one of their main ongoing projects 'End of Life Support' & 'Muslim Burial Fund'. I am asking you to support me as much as you to achieve my target and I pray that Allah, the Beneficent accept your donation.

Inspired by Peter Chatfield – Saeed Islam Died – 4th November 2014
Our vision is to bury needy Muslims with dignity and in accordance with their wishes and faith. Muslim Burial Fund has been setup to support the needy members of the Muslim community. We have supported many individuals with burial support. Incidences of unknown deceased Muslims are increasing. Sometimes bodies are kept in the hospital morgues for many weeks and months while authorities seek to find relatives or friends who can claim the body and organise their burial according to their faith. Most often these unknown Muslims are then cremated, which is a cheaper option than a traditional burial. The background of these Muslims include; students, elderly people residing in care homes, those with no legal status and Muslim reverts who have no family support.
Muslim Burial Fund provides assistance through advice, loans or grants after carefully assessing their needs. We help individuals by developing a burial plan and contribute towards their end of life plan. Muslim Burial Fund will usually support those who are eligible for Zakat and are isolated and/or have no family support.
Why the Boat Race?
Boat races are part of the great heritage of British culture and an amazing way to unite both competitors and communities together behind a common cause. Dragon Boat racing is something which is growing in popularity in the UK, originating from Southern China’s Guangdong Province.
Plus it's going to be a whole lot of fun!!!
Please donate generously, May Allah bless you. I really appreciate your help. Please come along to support us on the day as well. The boat race will be held on 22 June 19 at the Fairlop Waters, Ilford.
With Much love
