Shanthona Womens Group - Free Advice & Activity Day
The event took place on Wednesday at Dallow Learning Community Centre, in Dallow Road, from 1.30pm until 6.30pm.
The Shanthona group started out initially as a voluntary organisation in 2004 but became a registered charity two years ago.
The group help the local community in a range of ways, from running festive and cultural events to lifestyle activites and arts and crafts.
Members of the team speak a range of languages including English, Bangali and Urdu, so are even available to help those who aren’t confident when it comes to Town Hall matters such as paying bills and claiming benefits as well as fiscal problems.
The team also strive to give people the skills needed to secure a job - often taking people on as volunteers to teach them the skills they might need in the world of work.
Lilas Kayani a member of Social Wefare Law Department at Noble Solicitors comments “Had a wonderful time taking part in the community day. It felt most rewarding when people of the community thanked us at Nobles for helping them with their problems and attending the event”.
