ilm fast

On the weekend of the 19th and 20th of July, our Ilm Fast Iftaar dinners were held in Manchester and Bradford, dedicated to raising vital funds for Penny Appeal’s Gaza Emergency Response Appeal.




Both evenings featured special guest speakers Dr Abdullah Hakim Quick and Dr Reda Bedeir , who educated and inspired in equal measure, taking the 200 attendees on a spiritual journey. After dinner entertainment was provided by UK-born nasheed artist Ahmad Hussain. 


The events, held at Nawaab restaurant in Manchester and Rio Grande restaurant in Bradford, were a great success and attended by around 200 people each. 


Funds raised at the Iftaar dinners will provide life-saving support to the thousands of people affected by the current crisis in Gaza. Working with local networks already active in Gaza, Penny Appeal will supply food, household essentials and medical aid.


If you would like to set up a fundraising event, you can email your ideas to our Fundraising Team at or call our 24-hour contact centre on 03000 11 11 11 to discuss further.

Ladies Iftaar

Broadcaster and presenter Lauren Booth expertly hosted two ladies-only iftaar dinners, which were held in Manchester and Bradford on the 4th and 5th of July respectively. Raising funds for Penny Appeal’s Syria Emergency Appeal, these uplifting and motivating Ramadan events attracted around 150 attendees each.

The very special guests included Hafizah Ismail, founder of Children of Jannah, and Kristiane Backer, who was interviewed about her journey to Islam and subsequent Ramadan experiences. Entertainment followed from Pearls of Islam, as well as a three-course iftaar dinner and prayers.


Funds raised at the event will be used as part of Penny Appeal’s Syria Emergency Appeal to help provide life-saving meals to displaced Syrian refugee families.


If you would like to set up a fundraising event, you can email your ideas to our Fundraising Team at or call our 24-hour contact centre on 03000 11 11 11 to discuss further.

World Record Breakers


Penny Appeal have broken the Guinness World Record for the longest live televised charity appeal, which now stands at a fantastic 182 consecutive hours following our live TV charity telethon.

The record was broken at 5am on Friday, 25th July 2014, and smashes the previous record, which stood for 13 years. The live 24/7 appeal was televised on British Muslim TV, Sky channel 860 and took place during the last 10 days of Ramadan 2014.

All funds raised during the World Record Charity Appeal will go on to tackle poverty issues worldwide and will be used to feed the poor, build life saving wells, sponsor orphans, restore sight to people with avoidable blindness and provide emergency aid to those affected by the Syria and Gaza crises.

The live appeals have featured special guests, renowned scholars, feedback on Penny Appeal’s projects overseas, and live reports from the field. 

Our World Record Charity Appeal came at no better time as the people of Gaza are in desperate need of emergency food and medical aid.


With your generous donations, we can still help vulnerable families living in extreme poverty.
