Earlier this month, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice had the privilege of being a part of Bradford’s vibrant Curry Mela held at the picturesque Lister Park.
The event, brimming with festivities and flavours, provided the perfect platform for the hospice to make a meaningful impact in the community it serves.
Salma Pandor, the dedicated community engagement officer at Forget Me Not, expressed her delight, stating,
“It was a fantastic weekend, enriched by the heart-warming Curry Awards ceremony! We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Fatima Patel for extending the invitation, enabling us to raise awareness about the invaluable support we offer to local children and families.”
What made the event even more special was the overwhelming support from Nusaybah Patel’s family and friends.
Nusaybah, one of the hospice’s cherished mothers, was determined to contribute to the cause and rallied her loved ones to participate in full force.
Throughout the weekend, this incredible group of volunteers selflessly engaged in various activities, from collecting generous donations to showcasing their artistic skills through henna and face painting.
The highlight, undoubtedly, was the super fun sponge splash that brought smiles to many faces. Their collective efforts bore fruit, raising an impressive £1,000 in support of Forget Me Not’s mission.
The event not only celebrated the rich culinary heritage of Bradford but also embodied the spirit of community and compassion, where individuals came together to support a cause close to their hearts.
As the curtains drew on the Curry Mela, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice stands proud of the impact it made and extends an open invitation to all who wish to join hands in supporting their noble endeavours.
