Madressa

On Saturday 17th July, the SI Madressa of Essex held its Annual Sports Day at Lawford Mead Primary School.  All members of the community were invited to attend and there was a great turnout.
 
Activities commenced at 10.00am.  A number of sports and activities were offered, starting with a football match between the boys and parents.  The match was a score draw resulting in a penalty shootout, won by the boys.  There was also a lively game of cricket.  The girls enjoyed a game of rounders.  There were also teamed fun sports, ranging from "egg and spoon" for the youngest, to 3-legged race for the older participants! 
 
All these strenuous activities built up a thirst for an ice lolly or a "99" from the ice-cream van.  Interspersed between these sports, there was an opportunity to visit various stalls raising money for charity.  The youngest children were able to enjoy the bouncy castle.  Following afternoon prayers, there was a VIP visit from the Mayor of Chelmsford Borough Council, Councillor Alan Arnot and his wife.  They met members of the community and were appreciative of the hospitality shown to them on the day.  Other visitors on the day included the headmistress of Lawford Mead School, Miss Jackie Dawson, and a representative from Kidscape, a children-based charity raising much-needed funds for deprived children.
 
The day ended by speeches from the Madressa Principal, Dr. Qamar Abbas; Essex Jamaat President, Br. Sajjad Manji; Mayor Alan Arnot; and the Kidscape representative.  £125 was raised on the day and a cheque was handed over to Kidscape by Br. Sajjad Manji.
 
The day ended with a delicious lunch of kebab rolls, pakoras and samosas.
 
All in all, the day was blessed by good weather, a great turnout and several hours of sports and activities.  We thank the entire Madressa team for organising another very successful Sports Day and pray for its continued success.  A few photos from the day are shown below.
