Fundraising Campaign for SaSh
Here are details of the new fundraising campaign for SaSh with the all information on where and how to donate to the project. Thanks to everyone for help in raising much needed funds to keep our exciting project alive…
Salaam Shalom Kitchen (SaSh) is a joint Muslim-Jewish project, which provides a weekly, tasty and nutritious hot meal to people in need, in the deprived area of Hyson Green of Nottingham and it’s surroundings.
The aims of the project are to help those in need in our city and provide an opportunity for people from different faith and non-faith groups to get to know each other through doing this important work for the city of Nottingham.
Back in May 2015 the project was started by Himmah and Nottingham Liberal Synagogue, however over time we have had involvement from various Muslim, Jewish and other faith groups, and have plans to develop this more in the future.
Our first 6 months have been highly successful, using the funding we received from a Near Neighbours grant, which has shown the project grow and develop. We are now serving 50-70 people every week, with additional takeaway meals adding to almost double this number.
We have 40+ volunteers involved in helping at the project, and one paid coordinator who works 6 hours per week.
Our guests have an opportunity to make new friends among both other guests and volunteers on a weekly basis. Once a month we provide musical entertainment, as well as talks from various traditions both for our guests and volunteers, who are all encouraged to build connections with each other.
Going forward into 2016 we need at least £5,000 funds to continue this valuable project and are hoping that you may be able to help contribute to this.
You can donate money to our Charity Aid Foundation Account at: BANK: CAF: ACCOUNT NUMBER: 00027332 SORT CODE: 40-52-40
