A charity dinner held in Keighley to raise cash for an educational centre was a huge success.

More than 300 people attended the Naqshbandia Active Development Association (NADA) event, at Victoria Hall.

Just over £15,000 was raised towards NADA’s fundraising campaign to build an educational centre at Tile Street, Manningham.

In an address to guests, Keighley Town Mayor Councillor Amjad Zaman said he was greatly impressed with the innovative plans for the centre and with NADA’s success so far, especially in engaging with disaffected youth.

Manningham councillor Mohammed Amin spoke about his positive experiences of the organisation.

Entertainment was provided by renowned Islamic nasheed artist Kamal Uddin and there was an auction of canvas paintings.

NADA thanked sponsors Shimla Spice and Shans Supermarket, of Keighley, and everyone who supported the event.

Following the success of the dinner it is planned to hold a similar larger-scale event in Bradford.
