Midland Doctors raised a staggering £60k for our Hospital facility in North Kashmir at our Annual Charity Dinner at the beautiful surroundings of Goosedale Banqueting Centre in Papplewick, Nottingham. Huge thanks goes to our generous supporters and benefactors who gave more than we ever expected.
Highlights included a fantastic presentation by Dr Iftikhar on the work of the Midland Doctors this year and major donations from individuals and organisations. MDAUK University of Nottingham Medical Students donated £7k, Nottingham Alliance Cricket Club donated £3k, Sheraz Jenjua also donated £3k, Hafiz Shahid Hamid Kindly donated £2.4K, Imran Sakawat donated £2.5K, Iqbal Brothers Poultry gave £2k and Pak Foods donated £2K. This accompanied many other donations and pledges from the 370 that attended.
Special Guests and Friends attended from Birmingham and Bradford, as well as the usual faces from Derby and Nottingham!
The event was organised with the kind help of Nottingham Alliance Cricket League and key sponsors of the event included Pak Foods, Najib and Sons, Choudhery Catering Nottingham, Ace Star Limos and many others. The event was fully sponsored for food, venue and entertainment and therefore 100% of the donations are going towards our project activities.
This total is added to the funds raised during Ramadan and the recent Derby Anoki Fundraiser, moving us even closer to opening our Hospital doors to the first of many patients.
