On Wednesday 1 May, the CMF held a fundraising dinner at Bundu Khan Restaurant on Commercial Street. This was attended by over 120 people who came to support the CMF, sample the excellent cuisine, and hear from speakers who included:
Lord Sheikh – CMF Chairman
Syed Kamall – MEP for London
Bob Neill – MP for Bromley and Chislehurst
A particular highlight of the evening was the musical entertainment which encouraged men young and old to take part in the traditional Asian dancing. To spare their blushes, no photographs of that are being published here! However two photographs from the evening are below.
From left to right above are CMF Executive members Ahmedur Rahman and Sana Kahloon and Sana’s husband Rizwan Malik. CMF Executive member Hashim Bhatti can be seen just above Ahmedur Rahman’s right shoulder!
Syed Kamall took the opportunity to present certificates to the team that had won the quiz on knowledge of the European Union during the recent CMF trip to the European Parliament. From left to right above are CMF Executive members Ash Zaman and Ahmedur Rahman, Ms Najma Begum, Sayed Kamall MEP holding the team’s prize and CMF Executive member Asif Ayub. The team also included Executive member Fuad Hamzeh who was not in this particular picture, but received his certificate separately during the dinner.
