Sweet treats at first charity fundraiser

Congratulations to McAndrew Martin architect Salim Rahman and his family who have raised more than £2,000 for a new charity launched in honour of a beloved relative.
They started the MAKE Charity Foundation in memory of the late Mohammed Abdul Kaeum Esquire.
Mohammed – Salim’s father – was a Portsmouth resident for more than 30 years before his death in 2013.
The MAKE Charity Foundation’s inaugural event was a bake-off style fundraiser at the Buckland Community Centre, Buckland, in Portsmouth.
Hundreds of people tucked into the sweet treats at the extravaganza, with a grand total of £2,225 raised.
The foundation will raise funds for community projects in rural Bangladesh, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Salim said: “Charity begins at home, the home of our late father.
“So we are starting charitable projects in the village of Kelagram in the district of Sylhet, Bangladesh.
“It was my father’s wish that we continue to support local building projects, such as schools and mosques as well as support the poor and needy with medical and education costs.”
Visitors were encouraged to bring in their cakes to the extravaganza. The competition was judged by the former Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Frank Jonas.
It was won by Amira Rahman, 15, from North End, who made a three-layered cake decorated with a blue rose.
A story has also featured in the Portsmouth News about the success of the event. It showed a picture of Salim and the former Lord Mayor at the judging as well as a lovely photo of Mohammed Abdul Kaeum Esquire with his wife, grandson and granddaughters, in a picture taken at the Eid festival in 2012.
Well done to Salim and all of the family for raising a tremendous amount in a great cause.
