London mosques unite to raise money for Richard House

15 mosques around London have united to raise £2,500 for Richard House Children’s Hospice.

Quwwat-Ul-Islam Society Masjid in Upton Lane, Markaz Ud Dawat Wal Irshad in Eastham, Masjid-E-Hikmah in Plaistow, North Islamic Association in Newham, Tauheed Masjid in Manor Park, Al Falah in Kensington Gardens, Forest Gate Masjid, Ashville Rd Masjid, Leytonstone Islamic Association, Newham United, Stratford Islamic Association, East End Masjid, Masjid-E-Quba in Forest Gate, Masjid-E-Hidaya in Manor Park and Masjid-E-Bilal in Eastham all raised the invaluable funds to aid the work of the hospice – supporting children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Mr Abdullah Dalal speaking on behalf of the 15 mosques said, “Last year the mosques came together and supported Richard House and we as a community felt Richard House deserves our support again for the wonderful work it does with children and young adults.”

Anna Bates, Head of Community and Events thanked the mosques for their ongoing support and said, “We are absolutely delighted that the local Muslim community are continuing to support Richard House Children’s Hospice by making a donation toward our services. 42% of the children we work with are from the Muslim community and we hope to develop our partnership with the community in order to spread awareness of our services and our need for donations, so that we can help all of the families who require our support.”
