Maryam Centre 50 % Complete November 2011

Since Ramadan work has continued on the outer shell of our Phase 2 expansion, the Maryam Centre. The windows have been installed and the roofing completed. This marks the half-way point - a significant milestone for our community.

The fundraising drive in Ramadan raised over £1 million in donations, pledges and Qard-e-Hasanah, reflecting the wonderful support the East London Mosque continues to enjoy from ordinary Muslims, who recognise the important role the mosque plays.

A major fundraiser on Channel S saw the community donate over £500,000, with a similar amount at the mosque on the 27th night of Ramadan. The ELM cake stall made a return this Ramadan, with all the proceeds going towards the new building.

People who attend Jumu'ah prayers will know we already operate at maximum capacity - hence the need for more space is paramount. In particular, the prayer capacity for women in the Maryam Centre should make a huge difference for those who struggle to find a space to pray on Fridays.

Donations are still being accepted; the Al-Hambra Wall has only 140 spaces left, but contributions can also be made towards the new Visitor Exhibition Centre or even a prayer space for the new halls.
