What started as a small idea turned into a popular event as six-year-olds Ayaan Moosa and Mikaeel Ishaaq made promotional videos and told all their friends at school to come along on Sunday, July 5.

Ayaan’s mum Adeela Moosa worked with the charity One Nation where 100pc of the donations go towards aid for Yemen. She said: “It was a great example of a community working together to raise money for those in dire need.”
