When is 'The London 50' happening?
Sunday 16th December 2013
Why should you get involved?
There are many reasons why you should sign up for The London 50 including:
- Raise money for charity and help alleviate poverty right here in the UK.
- Get super fit and push yourself to new limits.
- Meet like minded people and make new friends.
- Invest in your Hereafter.
The Prophet ﷺ (peace be upon him) said:
"And whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother (in the life of this world), Allah will fulfill his needs (in this world and the Hereafter); whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a distress (in the life of this world), Allah will bring him out of the distress of the Day of Resurrection" (Al Bukhari)
Why support the National Zakat Foundation?
Our charity of choice for the event is the National Zakat Foundation - a ground-breaking initiative which aims to utilise Zakat funds and voluntary donations collected in the UK for the benefit of local, deserving recipients. This group includes some of the most vulnerable members of our community, including widows, orphans, refugees, the elderly as well as the homeless.
With winter coming up, things are going to get a lot worse for our vulnerable brothers and sisters who are living in poverty without adequate shelter, warm clothes or even enough food to eat. For many of them, NZF is the only lifeline they have to turn to in times of desperate need.
NZF are currently receiving hundreds of applications for support per month and urgently need to raise funds in order to cope with the strong demand on its services - which is set to increase further in the long and cold winter months ahead.
How you can get involved?
- Participate as a cyclist and raise money through sponsorship
- Sponsor a cyclist in The London 50 team
- Make a donation direct to NZF
- Spread the word about the event and encourage your friends and family to donate
- Make du'a for the success of the event and all those who sacrifice their time and effort to participate.
YOU CAN HELP END THIS STRUGGLE FOR THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES THIS WINTER THROUGH YOUR DONATIONS:
£50 can provide food vouchers for a family struggling to eat
£100 can provide heating, hot water and warm clothes for a family struggling to keep warm
£250 can provide emergency shelter, hot meals and warm clothes for a homeless individual in need
£500 can provide a safe haven for a homeless sister in one of our specialist shelters
