Coventry ladies get fit and fundraise for refugees
One of our dedicated #TeamOrange volunteers, Alycia Malta, recently organised a Ladies Fitness Extravaganza, bringing 30 women together for fun activities and a chance to help refugees.
Held at Eden Girls School in Coventry, it raised over £800, which will support people fleeing conflict by providing things such as nutritious meals, warm clothing and blankets.
Attendees took part in everything from Tabata and Zumba to bootcamp, dodgeball and dance, and sponsors and supporters included Clariotts Care Coventry, Positive Youth Foundation, Crepefresh and Krusty’s.
“It was great to see women in the community get together and do something different for charity,” said Alycia.

Outlandish and Saif Adam tour provides clean water
Our five-city Outlandish and Saif Adam tour has now come to an end, and we’re delighted to announce that it was a massive success.
The donations and commitments made will go on to provide clean water to over 32,000 people and over 6,000 farm animals in needy communities through our Solar Panel Water and Power Centres. These centres use the sun’s energy to pump water from deep under the ground and also provide electricity for schools!
You can donate towards these centres or even build a well – head to the Thirst Relief page to find out more or call us on 03000 11 11 11.
A massive thank you to everyone who came to the shows, including our dedicated #TeamOrange volunteers who were on-hand to help in any way possible.

Bradford College students build well in memory of Suresh
Students from Bradford College are honouring the memory of a fellow student by building a well in his name.
Suresh Ram, who was studying ophthalmic dispensing, died unexpectedly last summer at the age of just 21.
His college friends were determined to do something positive in his name and after raising £300 have paid for a well to be built in Nepal.
Classmate Zain Ali said: “Hopefully, by doing this in his memory we not only help the people in Nepal but also show his family he was an important person to his follow students and the college. As a friend he meant a lot to us all.”
Building a Thirst Relief well is a wonderful sadaqah jariyah for a loved one and costs from just £300 one-off payment or £25 a month. Call 03000 11 11 11 to donate.

The event was a huge success, raising £2,500 to support refugee families who are fleeing conflict.
Yaseen said: “On the day we had 25 amazing #TeamOrange volunteers and were overwhelmed by the support from the community. We enjoyed all sorts of tasty treats, from freshly barbecued meat and a selection of curries and spicy savouries, to traditional Kenyan dishes and a whole host of cakes and desserts!”
At the end of February Yaseen will be taking on Coventry’s Half Marathon alongside more than 70 #TeamOrange #TeamMesmerEyez runners.
