This year Bridges organised 5 Sharing Ramadan events in Cardiff and 2 in Bristol, enabling people to visit a mosque (many for the first time) and learn about what this time of year means to the Muslim community.
What participants said:
Thank you so much for the experience tonight, I had such a great time and was made to feel so welcome by everyone. It was wonderful to see what goes on in a mosque and to experience the breaking of the fast with lovely company and delicious food.
Thank you for facilitating such a wonderful evening. I had no idea there was a large mosque there. We were so warmly welcomed by our Muslem sisters, they ensured we were well fed with great generosity. The lady I sat next to for the Iftar meal has children who go to the primary school that I live right opposite! They seemed touched that I hadn't eaten (since my breakfast!) so that I could better appreciate the experience of breaking the fast.
