Niyaz is a not-for-profit Cheshire-based group that raises money for children's charities in all regions of Iran. One of the charities that has benefited from these efforts is the Omid Foundation which provides education and training to marginalised women.
Throughout the Persian New Year themed evening, short speeches were given on Niyaz's charitable goals before guests enjoyed a delicious three-course meal and took part in a raffle that featured some fantastic prizes.
