The Great Giftar

15 May 2018 - 12:00 AM  |  Across North, East and West Yorkshire

The blessed month of Ramadan is a time of great sacrifice and giving. It is also a time of sharing and coming together with friends and loved ones. It is an opportunity to extend the hand of welcome and openness to our brothers and sisters, and to friends from other faiths.

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) used to pay alms and give to charity throughout the year on a matchless scale but during Ramadan his charity intensified.

This Holy Month, there are many ways that you can support children with life limiting conditions and their families in your local community:

  • Join with others to hold a community iftar and donate the equivalent sum of the day’s meal that you would have eaten to Martin House as part of The Great Giftar
  • You can donate Sadaqah directly here: https://www.martinhouse.org.uk/Donate
  • Or pop into one of our shops and collect a Sadaqah donations box to keep somewhere handy throughout Ramadan and fill it up each day!
  • Text RAMD05 £5 to 70070 to donate £5 to Martin House and make a difference today.
