Aim: To learn how to put together an event for the community, as well as negotiating and working with local businesses.
Description: To celebrate Eid-Al-Adha, LMYF hosts a yearly Eid fest where they invite members of the public to join in the fun. The Eid fest boasts various stalls, inflatables, games, food and entertainment. Last year the event was held in the Bilal Centre, Harehills, when LMYF invited nasheed artist Khalid Siddique who performed to over 300 people.
Outcome: Membership forms were available on tables so those attending who were interested in joining LMYF could do so. LMYF ambassadors introduced themselves and gave a talk outlining what LMYF is all about. We increased people’s awareness of LMYF and networked with small businesses, allowing ambassadors to gain new skills.
