“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”  (Henry James)

Relax in the company of friends, as you enjoy the Hilton's finest selection of halal finger sandwiches, scrumptious scones served with clotted cream and jam, followed by delectable cakes, fancies and macarons. Between servings of their wide range of delicate and fragrant blends of tea, we’ll hear from the women who’ve been there, done that, and come out the other side shining. 
As Muslim women in Britain, we face unprecedented challenges – be it in education, in the workplace, the relentless Islamophobia we face in our society, or be it our personal struggles behind closed doors: with our identity, family, and clinging to our faith in a time of confusion and doubts.  

Each of these formidable and inspirational women will share their stories of how they found ease after hardship, self-belief after self-doubt, and attained success against the odds. Overcoming the most challenging situations and personal tests, they emerged stronger, wiser, having developed and demonstrated exemplary resilience and perseverance.  

United as sisters in faith and humanity, their experiences will help us to empower ourselves spiritually, psychologically and within our communities, so that we can ensure that every woman - no matter what her circumstance - is afforded the same opportunities, the same sisterhood, such that she no longer suffers alone in silence.
With uplifting spoken word to conclude an afternoon packed with warmth and courage, there really is no better way to spend your winter’s day!
HHUGS (Helping Households Under Great Stress) is the only UK registered charity providing financial, pastoral and practical support to families impacted by the arrest of a loved one. We embrace and empower some of the most vulnerable and marginalised women in the UK, abandoned and forgotten by the community. We relieve their hardship, restore hope and rebuild lives.

NB: While the attendees women only, waiting staff and AV technicians may be male and present at intervals during the afternoon.
