The weather was brilliant and 750 runners turned out to support the construction of the Maryam Centre.
It was a very enjoyable morning full of lots of smiles and banter. We had an 82 year old cut it with 8 year olds. I passed Imam Abul Hussain on route and caught up with London Bangla Press Club President Nobab Bhai.
A celebratory full English breakfast rounded off a satisfying morning.
The new Maryam Centre will include:
•Increased prayer space for women and men
•Educational facilities for girls
•Health and fitness centre for women
•Expanded range of women's services and projects
•Improved facilities for funeral service
