Linda McAvan MEP’s dinner raise thousands for school

Over 200 women attended Linda’s International Women’s Day Dinner at the Cedar Court Hotel Wakefield on 17th March 2016. Everyone was keen to learn more about the school and we were all amazed by the kindness and friendship shown.

Said Khalida Luqman, “I have been to Linda’s charity dinners before but I could never have imagined that one of these events would have been dedicated to the Tasibeh Girls School. It’s a very humbling experience and I have been overwhelmed by the support”

In addition to Linda speech there were contributions from Yvette Cooper MP and Guest Speaker, renowned author, Marina Lewycka.

So far this event and the other International Women’s Day events have raised over £8000 for the school.
Said Tasibeh Girls School Treasurer Anna Chester “The fundraising led by Linda and her team has raised a phenomenal amount for the school. £8000 will make a huge difference and will cover the running costs of the school for 9/10 months”

Community Lunch – huge success

On what must have been the worst day of this winter around 70 women came to our Community Lunch to celebrate International Women’s Day. we were delighted to welcome Linda McAvan MEP as our speaker, Linda is a long standing friend and supporter of the school and has chosen the Tasibeh Girls School as her charity for 2016.
Women from across the community and all walks of life made this event such a success.
Everyone had a great time and we raised over £1000 for the school.

Tasibeh girls design Christmas Card for Linda McAvan MEP

Every year Linda McAvan MEP involves school pupils in the design of her Christmas card which goes out to hundreds of people. This year she invited pupils of the Tasibeh Girls School to submit designs for the card – the first time a school outside Yorkshire and the Humber have been involved.

There were nearly 100 entries and the winning design came from Haida, age 9 – her design is below
