UK based Nigerian Woman Violates UK laws to Reach out to Lonely People in this Christmas Period

by Anjorin Dare

An unlawful act borne out of a charitable heart may find mercy instead of justice even in a utopian society. Such is the case of a UK based Nigerian woman, Mo Fayose who violated the law of Nottingham Community to reach out to the lonely people by organizing a Christmas dinner for over 100 lonely people in the area.

Mo, who has been hosting the event for three years hires two halls to host this year’s edition. With about £3,000 of her personal money and donations, Mo pays for the venues, while a team of volunteers cooks a three-course dinner.

In an interview with BBC the mental health nurse said she had “been through it all” in life, including the breakdown of her marriage and being blinded in one eye because of a car accident.

She decided to put up posters for this year’s event, so as to get across to people who are not on social media but she was shocked when a Nottingham City Council community protection officer ordered her to remove them.

However, while highlighting that fly-posting is a problem in the city, the council has decided to take no action regarding the posters. Describing Mo’s work as fantastic, the council said it always promotes the importance of looking after each other which includes encouraging people to cook a Christmas dinner for neighbours who may be on their own.
