Just wanted to share with you what a great time I had when I attended a fundraising event. The event was hosted by and in aid of Beyond Sight Loss which is a peer led support group for visually impaired people living in Tower Hamlets.
It was an excellent evening. There was music being played in the background and lots of raffle prizes were won by the members, which included high street vouchers, teddy bears and exhibition tickets. Beyond Sight Loss are very grateful to the individuals and organisations who donated their prizes to the group. Moreover, prizes were handed out to members who were able to give correct answers to ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’ and “How Many Sweets in a Jar”.
Members also enjoyed their three-course meal. It included samosas for starters, Undhiu (a variety of unusual vegetables, prepared slowly with small mildly spiced dumplings), served with naan and raitha for the main course, and mango sorbet for desert. The food tasted fresh and was very delicious to eat!
Towards the end of the evening, everyone was in a great mood. The members were dancing on the dance floor and having a fantastic time. What can I say? The fundraising event was a success and I’m already looking forward to next year!
Well done Beyond Sight Loss for putting on such a great event and to chairwoman Ashrafia Chouldhury for making it all possible. Congratulations!
