The Mall, Wood Green is celebrating Eid this year with a special event at the shopping centre.

To mark this important occasion, The Mall has arranged for a henna artist to visit its premises on both Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June. The event will take place between 11-4pm on the ground floor of The Mall, close to Primark.

In order to keep costs to a minimum, The Mall will be charging just £1 per person. All funds raised will be donated to the Godwin Lawson Foundation, The Mall’s newly appointed charity partner.

Established in 2012 by Yvonne Lawson, the charity’s main aims are to celebrate the life of Godwin Lawson, who lost his life in an unprovoked knife attack in 2010 and to reduce gun and knife crime across London.

The Godwin Lawson Foundation works with youngsters from across North London, building their self-esteem and self-confidence and creating safe places for them to go.

Gwendolyne Lobo, Marketing Manager for The Mall added: “”We want to embrace and celebrate this joyous occasion in some way, offering something a little different in the centre. Everyone is welcome, of all faiths and none, and we hope lots of people from the community come down and join in.  We also thought it would be a good way to kick off our fundraising campaign for the Godwin Lawson Foundation and make locals aware of this fantastic and incredibly hardworking charity.”
