Ramadan TV appeal
Thank you to everyone who tuned into our live fundraising appeal earlier this week. If you missed it, you will have the opportunity to catch us again on Thursday 9th July and Friday 10th July from 8:30pm - 3:30am. Please support the vital work of NZF and join us on Sky Channel 852 or watch on livestream.
Your Zakat at work
In June, we experienced a surge in referrals and processed 125 Zakat applications from UK Muslims, mainly related to homelessness. Although many mosques offer iftar in the month of Ramadan, applicants are struggling to find shelter during these long days of fasting. We distributed £86,974 of Zakat funds to those in desperate need and are currently dealing with a number of applications in relation to debt relief. If you would like to make a difference, volunteer with our distribution in London. Apply here.
Soul rally 2015
We are looking for volunteers to sign up to take part in the challenge of a lifetime. Soul Rally 2015 is a unique road trip, from London to Marrakesh via Paris, San Sebastian and Cordoba. If you would like to sign up for Team NZF, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 12th July.
Lantern of Knowledge scholarships
NZF has teamed up again with Lantern of Knowledge Educational Trust to provide grants for Zakat-eligible students to help make Higher Education in the UK more accessible. Current and new university students may apply for grants of up to £3,000. The application deadline for the academic year 2015/16 is Wednesday 22nd July 2015. Email email@example.com for further details.
