Amir Khan visits Penny Appeal to discuss orphan village

Amir Khan at Penny Appeal

There was a very special visitor at Penny Appeal Head Office this week – two-time world champion boxer Amir Khan.

His charity, the Amir Khan Foundation, is joining forces with Penny Appeal to build a new orphan village in The Gambia.


Phase one will be home to 100 children, providing them with loving foster mothers, nutritious meals each and every day, clothing, healthcare and an education.


This all adds up to the chance to create a brighter future away from poverty.


Penny Appeal Chair of Trustees, Adeem Younis, gave Amir a tour and updated him on how our work is progressing.


“There was a lot of excitement about Amir’s visit and it was fantastic to be able to sit down and discuss our plans,” said Adeem.


“Amir is really dedicated to helping the poor and needy – he has already been out with our teams on Penny Appeal projects – and we’re all looking forward to working together to transform the lives of orphans in The Gambia.”

You can help right now by making a donation towards the Penny Appeal and Amir Khan Foundation orphan village fund. Call 03000 11 11 11 to give your support to desperate orphans.

On Thursday 17th July until the end of Ramadan, Penny Appeal attempted to break the World Record for the longest Televised Charity Appeal. Our team at Penny Appeal aimed to smash the previous record of 181 hours by broadcasting live 24/7 on British Muslim TV, Sky channel 845, throughout the last ten days of Ramadan.





  The last ten days of Ramadan are really special as they bring with them an opportunity for forgiveness and immeasurable reward. At Penny Appeal, we’re determined to take advantage of this by doing even more to help the poor and needy.  Funds raised during the World Record Charity Appeal will 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. Our World Record Charity Appeal comes at no better time as the people of Gaza are in desperate need of emergency aid and just £100 can feed two whole families for an entire month. Get involved by tuning in to BMTV, Sky channel 860. The live appeal will feature special guests, renowned scholars, feedback on Penny Appeal’s projects overseas, and live reports from the field.

luton iftaar

Penny Appeal’s Family Iftaar in Luton on Friday 18th July was a great success with a sell-out audience of 500, who came along to meet a range of special guests including British Boxing Champion Amir Khan, and raise money for water projects worldwide.



The Iftaar was held at Venue Central in Luton and provided the perfect opportunity for families to break their fast in the company of some of the UK’s leading Muslim personalities and groups. On his first visit to the town, Amir Khan entertained the audience and gave an exclusive peek into his life so far.


Nasheed group Al Musafirun, and well-known personalities Abu Da’wah and Dawah Man completed the evening’s line-up with their wise words, beautiful recitation and moving nasheeds. 


An equally important aspect of the event was the opportunity to raise funds for water solutions, such as water wells in Pakistan, and water tanks and filtration units in Gaza where clean water is scarce and desperately needed.


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.

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.
