The group chatting at the event

A Muslim community group in Woking has raised £400 for the maternity department at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals. Members of the Hum Nawa group, which means ‘Like Minded People’ in Urdu, organise social events every year and choose a local organisation or charity to support.

The money was raised from a special Mother’s Day celebration earlier this year and as a result the group wanted to make the donation to the maternity department at St Peter’s Hospital.

Hum Nawa Co-ordinator Mohammad Ilyas Raja said: “There is a large Muslim community in Woking and we are very keen to support local services and charities. Because this money was raised from our Mother’s Day celebration we felt it was very fitting that we made the donation in support of our local maternity services.”

Representatives from the group, Councillor Raja, Treasurer of Hum Nawa Mrs Shafiq, Mrs Soofia Mir and Mrs Attia Aslam visited the hospital earlier this month, touring the hospital’s new Abbey Birth Centre where they made the donation to Trust Chairman Aileen McLeish, Chief Nurse Heather Caudle and members of the maternity team.

Aileen McLeish adds: “We are delighted that Hum Nawa chose to support us and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped raise the money. I know our maternity department will put the funds to very good use.”
