A Taste of Bangladesh – Thank you

An evening of food, photographs and discussion took place last Saturday 21st May to present life in Dhaka and in particular Jheelpur slum. About 40 people attended and enjoyed curries (particularly prawns!) and Saffia’s presentation of her visit to the Slum where Arban is hoping to build and run a new medical centre.

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of those who attended we raised nearly £625 for ARBAN UK. Thank you to everyone who helped us make the evening a success and so rewarding for the Arban team.

Bristol 10k – 15th May 2011

Well done to the ‘Run for the Slum’ team of runners and supporters for a great effort this morning. 28 runners successfully ran 10k, cheered on by a great back up team of parents, friends and children.

Huge thanks for the sponsorship money that everyone has collected – don’t forget to tell people it is not to late to donate!

We’re already planning the next run and team curry night – details to follow!

Post your race times as comments if you are proud of them – we’ll post photos on the (new look, hopefully!!) website in a day or two.
