 Cradle For Life International Fund Raising Event Invitation

Dear Brothers and sisters,
I, on behalf of Cradle For Life International invite you and the family for this event on
Satuday 4th June 2016
Venue: Mayfair Venue 1078-1082 , High Road, Chadwell Heath RM6 4BD
Time: 6.pm. to midnight

Please make it a success as you did in January 2015. Your contributions and support help our work immensely and if you can think of “some” excuse your money certainly can’t, so why not avail the opportunity to meet long lost friends over a testy meal and even tastier and tantalising gossip before we all became good boys and girls in Ramadan.  Also it provides an excellent and easy way to donate zakat and khairat; so don’t forget cash and cheque books.  Deen and dunya under one  roof, they don’t call us Cradle For Life” for nothing!

AND please do confirm your participation at least two weeks in advance to avoid disappointment, last time many friends turned up at the door  and this caused difficulty with seating and food.

Ticket price is £30 per person, children under five go free.

For Tickets please contact me on Mob:078160  23389, or 017080760250

Car Parking at the Mosque…



We have car parking facility, however this is primarily to serve elderly, female drivers and visitors, especially on Fridays and during days of celebration (such as day’s of Eid). Where possible we encourage worshipers to use the car parking facility at the Brewery, which is 2 minutes walk from the mosque and on Sunday’s parking is free!

Please be considerate to our neighbours and under no circumstances block neighbouring garages or park on adjacent roads as it is highly likely that mobile traffic wardens would take photo for processing a fine and you car may even be removed.

Donations – Please donate generously…


The mosque has obtained planning permission to build a single storey extension to the front to increase security, enable better organisation of shoe racks and to increase prayer area on the ground floor. You are therefore requested to donate generously in order for us to progress with the extension work. It is with your support the mosque continues to flourish and serve the Muslim community.
