CONGRATULATIONS to Islamic Society for winning Society of the Month for OCTOBER. Here's what they had to say about the event they ran that bagged them the award.

#4 How many people came?


#5 How did the attendees participate?

There was around 100 people for the auction and dinner event which including the likes of Peter Kyle (local MP). Also other representatives from the local community came to share an amazing evening with us. A total of £4590.46 was raised for Islamic Relief which is an amazing figure. For the fifa night there was close to 50 people there and the winner received a prize of fifa 19!

#6 What did you learn?

As a committee we all learnt many different things! the main thing was that without good teamwork an event is difficult to organise therefore it is very important we work together to achieve the same goal. I personally learnt that successful events require great organisation skills. I hope all of these events help me in the future when organising events.

#7 How does your event benefit students?

The main aim of the events was to bring everyone together in order to raise money for a charity. Everyone did their own little part but a big thank you goes to Sihem, who as the president took the lead and did a lot of the hard work which many people will never see. She deserves credit for all of her hard work and I hope we win this award and a mention has to go to her! :)
