Two successful fundraising events this weekend in Sheffield and Saddleworth have raised £1700 towards scholarships for Palestinian women in Gaza.
In Sheffield, the Top Shelalas sang to a packed crowd at the Broomspring Centre, raising £800.
Saddleworth PWSF had an amazing fundraising event on Sunday 11 October. Over 70 people came to the event and heard a moving and powerful presentation by Dr Mona El-Farra from Gaza. Her description of life under occupation and of the resilience shown by Palestinians spoke to us all. We were also delighted to welcome our local MP, Debbie Abrahams, who also addressed the meeting.
We raised in the region of £950 (money is still coming in) and, as importantly, raised awareness of life under occupation and the challenges faced by women wishing to gain access to higher education
Our thank to everyone who supported the event’
