Nov 26th fundraiser – huge thanks

On Sunday we had the most special night raising nearly £5000 for emergency relief in Gaza.

Wonderful solidarity singing followed by fabulous food – some cooked by the amazing Sahar and some donated by generous business people around Sheffield and Rotherham ( see below)

We also showed a moving tribute to the samud of Gaza’s fishing community who in spite of the threat from Israeli gunboats would go out every day to fish. Thy have of course now lost all their boats and fishing equipment after the bombing of Gaza port.

The money raised means nearly 12000 people can be given meals.

Contributors from Sheffield and Rotherham

2017 is 10th anniversary year for Scholarship Fund

Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund sponsored its first three women students into university in Gaza in 2007. This year we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary  and aiming to reach the target of sending out a total of £100,000 over 10 years.

To reach this target we need to raise £23,000 by June 2017. We have raised £19,000 to date, so are well on the way. There are events planned during the year including an International Women’s Day celebration in Sheffield Town Hall on Wednesday 8th March at 7.00pm. The event is being hosted by the Lord Mayor’s Office.

Come and join us to celebrate the students who have gained degrees and those we are currently supporting. Hear their stories and see their achievements.
