Ramadan is the most important month of the year in the Muslim Calendar when Muslims around the world abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours. At a recent Ramadan Festival held in Weston-s-Mare, Assistant Provincial Grand Master, Martin Slocombe was pleased to support two local Charities. He presented cheques for £250 to Sayd, Chairman of the North Somerset Black and Minority ethnic network (BME), and to Miriam, Chairman of the Multi-cultural Friendship Association. These donations were match funded by Cllr David Jolly in his position as Chairman of North Somerset Council. The presentation was followed by a plentiful banquet to celebrate the end of Ramadan.
