The voluntary fast is part of group Sisters4Sisters’ ‘Celebrating the Power of Women’ event on June 1, where Muslims and non-Muslims are invited to the Royal Banquet Hall off London Road to raise money for charity Safenet, which keeps women and children safe from domestic abuse.

The event will also welcome guest speakers Naz Shah MP, Ustadha Ameena Blake, and Zoe Bennett.

A spokesman for the event said: “Please join us for an evening of fasting, inspiration and food with your family and help us raise money for Preston women’s refuge.”
