Woodhill Iftar Event - Thursday 30th March

As many of you may know, the month of Ramadan is due to start on either 23rd or 24th March this year, depending on the sighting of the new moon. Ramadan is a time when many Muslims around the world, including lots of families at Woodhill, will fast from sunrise until sunset every day. We are delighted to announce that Woodhill will be hosting an iftar gathering on Thursday 30th March from 6.45 – 9pm. Iftar is the name of the meal that Muslims have at sunset to break the fast.

We would like to invite all of our Woodhill families, of all faiths and none, fasting or not, to join us for this very special event. Dates (the fruit!) and drinks will be provided, but we would like to ask that every family who attends please bring a dish to share. We would ask that on this occasion, any food donated should be either suitable for vegetarians or halal.
