Will you hear the hoot of a witch's owl or feel the tickle of a hairy spider?

NENG Spotlight on Community work
Posted by in

In addition to coordinating community events such as the Nether Edge Farmers' Market and annual Nether Edge Festival. NENG is keen to promote the many other organisations contributing to charitable fundraising and community cohesion across out area. This is the first in a new series putting some of the great work that is going on locally under the spotlight. If you've got suggestions for other organisations that we could work more closely with or feature in future please get in touch...

In the meantime, thank you to UKIM for their recent Broadfield Park hospitality during Eid week for the Nether Edge community and here is a bit more information about them....

UKIM Sheffield Centre

The UK Islamic Mission UKIM began in 1962 by addressing the immediate religious needs of the new migrant Muslim community in the UK. From early on, UKIM also worked to educate the Muslim community on how it could participate fruitfully and contribute positively to the moral and spiritual betterment of wider society within which they had made their homes.

UK Islamic Mission (UKIM) Sheffield is a fairly small but very active branch. It has always been engaged in good projects.  Recently for example, a charity walk by two Branch members, Jamil Akhtar and Rizwan Ullah along with Consultant Surgeon Dr Shah Nawaz raised over £1600 for the Northern General Hospital “Vascular Surgical” ward.

Before this there was another fund-raising event for St Luke’s Hospice which raised over £500 towards the Hospice’s work. In previous years UKIM Sheffield worked with local Mosques to raise money for a CCT Scanner for the Children’s Hospital and jointly more than £17000 pounds were raised from Sheffield and Rotherham Muslim community. UKIM Sheffield is also involved in many other projects and initiatives,  Sheffield Climate Change Alliance and Sheffield Emergency Contingency Planning project for example.  Interfaith events are very popular. UKIM Sheffield also provides free literature to develop non-Muslim communities understanding of Islam including copies of English translation of the holy Quran. UKIM are always happy to host interfaith or any other events which are for the common good of the community. If you are interested in learning more, in working with UKIM or suggesting  projects why not get in touch with UKIM Sheffield team who believe in collaborative work and community interaction.  Their Office is 525 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield.
