A children’s hospice has been described as a “deserving cause” by an imam following a donation of more than �6,000.
Members of South Woodford Mosque, Mulberry Way, South Woodford raised the money for Haven House Children’s Hospice, High Road, Woodford Green.
Dr Mohammed Fahim visited the hospice to speak to staff about Islamic beliefs and customs, particularly regarding death and bereavement.
He said: “We were delighted both to offer hospice staff advice on how best to support Muslim children and families, and to raise money for such a deserving cause that does such fantastic work across all faiths and communities.”
Mosque members raised money through collecting donations from their family and friends.
