A cheque for more than £2,000 was presented to the former Mayor of Redbridge by a Muslim scout group.

The Muslim 7th Goodmayes Scout Group completed a sponsored walk of 12 miles earlier this year passing various Muslim places of worship and community centres.

The children raised £2,400.

They presented the cheque to Cllr Muhammed Javed on Friday at the Hargreaves Scout Campsite, Hainault Road, Newbury Park.

Scout leader Tahir Mahmud said: “All of the awards and badges given out to the youngsters are extremely well deserved.”
