The Federation of Redbridge Muslim Organisations gathered all the goods at the Gardens of Peace Cemetery, Elmbridge Road, Hainault, ready for sorting.

On Sunday, they plan to drop off their collection to the winter night shelter 
being run by the Salvation Army.

Mohammed Asif, chairman of the organisation, said: “It’s not about colour, creed or race. It’s about 
being human and that’s fundamental to being a person of faith.

“We should look after people who are vulnerable. That’s what makes us 
human beings.”

The Salvation Army thanked the federation as well as the Newbury Park League of Jewish Women and all the churches which donated goods.
