*Slough Community Grenfell Tower Emergency Appeal*

We at Jamia Masjid and Islamic Centre, 83 Stoke Poges Lane, Slough offer our deepest condolences to those individuals and families affected by the devastating fire that has shattered precious lives at Grenfell Tower in West London.

We allocated 2 fundraising nights for this appeal and had collected *cash only* donations after Isha prayers on the 14th and 15th June 2017. So far £6,000 plus have been raised and donations are still coming in.

All funds raised will be used to purchase emergency relief items for those effected and will be distributed via trusted, local partners on the ground in the affected area.

In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today. Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall. The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".
