This month, the Islamic Society participated in a nationwide collaboration event! Every ISoc around the U.K. ran a Charity Week.
Brighton ISoc hosted a ticketed Charity Auction Meal where donated art, books and luxury baked goods were auctioned off after a night of good food and entertainment! On top of this they raised additional funds through; Bake Sales, a FIFA night, Board Games Night and Murder Mystery.
Altogether Brighton ISOC raised over £12,000 for refugees and orphans in need! This is a phenomenal achievement and we are beyond proud of all their hard work for such an amazing cause.
We asked the committee to please tell us the aims and objectives of the event -
