Preston North End Community and Education Trust [PNECET] is set to celebrate Ramadan on a grand scale for a third consecutive year, with a weekly roadshow planned for every week during the holy month.
Ramadan is the ninth, holy month of the Islamic calendar, which is regarded as a time of reflection and gratitude for Muslims, who fast from sunrise to sunset every day throughout the festival.
PNECET will distribute free Chicken biryani meals alongside traditional dates and fresh water to members of the local Muslim community, including refugees and asylum seekers, supporting those in need throughout the month.
Throughout March and April, PNECET will have a stall staged at a different location on alternative evenings each week, handing out those traditional goods to those who are fasting during Ramadan.
The charity will also be delivering employment skills and CV training to refugees and asylum seekers to help them gain employment and build valuable experience.
