Teachers hope to raise £500 for Cardiff Foodbank joining Muslim students on a Ramadan fast – after reading about it in on WalesOnline.

They will go 19 hours without eating or drinking anything during day light on July 3 to raise awareness of Islam as well as helping local people.

The three teachers at the Celtic English Academy in Park Place said they wanted to take part in Ramadan for a day after reading about how the city’s Dar Ul-Isra Mosque will feed 400 people, including homeless people, every night throughout the 30 days of the religious festival.

They also want to show support for their many Muslim students who observe strict daylight fasting for the whole of Ramadan.

Andrew Bodgin, Jon Letson and Jennifer John will be joined on the fast by the school’s marketing director Shoko Morimoto.
