On the 21st December, AKF Sheffield hosted a community bazaar to raise funds for the Refugee Rescue Appeal. The event had a vast range of stalls, including scarves, clothes, henna, face painting, food and desserts. Items donated by the local community were also sold at the event with the proceeds going towards the Refugee Rescue Appeal.
Although the day started off to a wet start with heavy rains and cold temperatures, this did not dampen the spirits of the event, and over 50 people attended in support of the refugee plight in Europe.
The event was a great way to kick start the holidays for children, as they were entertained by a great range of games, including lucky dip and ‘Guess the Jelly Bean Jar’. While the children were occupied, adults enjoyed networking with other like-minded individuals over delicious food and cakes. For a lot of the attendees, it was their first time visiting an AKF office, and the event was a great way to introduce them to AKF. The event raised a total of £500 for AKF’s Refugee Rescue Appeal in Europe.
