Halifax residents concerned about the mounting crisis in Gaza, enjoyed an afternoon at a charity gala to raise money for the Palestinian people.
Halifax High School was a hive of activity as it hosted the Halifax Charity Gala for Palestine.
From traditional Asian cuisine and delicious sweet treats, to Mehndi, Islamic calligraphy and music as well as a bouncy castle, gladiator joust and a football tournament, there was something for all the family to enjoy.
Camran Tufail, one of the organisers of the event, said: “It’s been a really good day, with some great volunteers.
“We’ve had a mixture of people and we’ve had a lot of help and support from the local community.”
