Preston Ahmadi ladies raised funds for Save the Children on 20 May.

A bookstall was held in Preston city centre and was combined with a charity collection.

People were offered Henna painting and encouraged to make a donation to Save the Children in return.

Local president Sadeya Callaghan said:
"Using Henna painting was a great way of building bridges with members of the public, and at the same time raising funds for the amazing charity Save the Children. Whilst in the background the peaceful message of Islam was being relayed.” 

A number of peace leaflets were given out to members of the public.
