They were helped along by a selection of local businesses, as well as cakes baked by the talented Farhana.

HWT executive trustee Mohammed Zahoor said: "It was a showery day and to be honest we weren't sure whether we were going to have food left over.

"I'm always positive about these things but in the back of my mind I had a doubt that it would all get eaten.

"We had food for around 50 people and it went within half an hour. It was a wonderful day.

Specially-designed cakes were donated by Farhana.

"This shows what work is needed within as such a vulnerable community."
