Donations made at Redbridge’s mosques to be delivered to winter night shelter

Two large trucks have been ordered to help transport mounds of food, clothes and toiletries collected from mosques to be distributed in the borough.

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.”
