Sayd Ahmed and people from Somewhere To Go.


The owners of an Indian restaurant in Weston-super-Mare gave up their time during Ramadan to feed homeless and disadvantaged adults.

Sayd Ahmed and his team from Pappadoms visited Somewhere To Go in the Boulevard, which helps adults who are struggling with homelessness.

Ramadan is a Muslim tradition, which involves fasting while the sun is out.

Joan Eales, day centre manager at Somewhere To Go, told the Mercury: “As the sun went down and Ramadan began, Sayd and his team served a beautiful Indian meal to our clients.

“The food was wonderful – everyone said so and was really grateful.

“They said they felt as if they’d had a night out, which they don’t normally have.”
