PremierLeague-News.Com - Tribute paid to trustee who inspired the charity's work
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A Bradford charity that served 120 meals a day to homeless people and asylum seekers during Ramadan has described the drive as a "humbling experience" - and paid tribute to a former trustee who inspired the effort. Just Care has been serving weekly meals and handing out food packages to the city's most vulnerable since 2017. But trustee Razwan Akhtar kicked things up a notch for Ramadan this year, serving daily meals to refugees in hotels in Bradford and Halifax as well as homeless people - all while balancing his day job at Royal Mail and running his own business. The charity then handed out dozens of toys to the families it helps to celebrate the end of the fast. "It's not a nine-to-five, there’s no wage," said Razwan, 36. "Whatever help people need, we try to get it to them as soon as possible. "We’ve seen an increase in demand during the pandemic. It’s a humbling experience." Razwan said one motivation for the Ramadan drive was the memory of trustee Usman Sheikh, who died last year after a long battle with motor neurone disease. "He really pushed us to do this," he said. Just Care spent mornings and evenings picking up meals from caterers and delivering them to hotels housing refugees so they could keep to fasting during Ramadan.

. "Before we had a little kitchen," he said. "I said [to my wife] if we extended the kitchen she could cook more meals. "She agreed to that but wasn’t happy about it in the morning. But [people] really appreciate what we take them."
The charity also delivers food packages to families in need
The charity has also provided food packages to families in need twice a month, complete with supermarket vouchers. Razwan said the long-term aim for Just Care is to open its own small supermarket to provide for those in need. To find out more about the charity visit just-care.org.uk.
