SPECIAL THANK YOU: Community spirit is the focus for Stanmore mosque 

 Published on: 14th January 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Hujjat Islamic Centre on Wood Lane, Stanmore distributed gifts to neighbours and services in an attempt to build community relations in the area.

Over 50 volunteers of all ages gathered to prepare, wrap and deliver presents to all types of people – including Watford FC player Gerard Deulofeu, who played against Manchester United the day after the visit.

The mosque went to over 100 houses on Dennis Lane, Wood Lane, Warren Lane and Stanmore Hill, and they were all gifted a box of Lindt chocolates, Christmas accessories and a handwritten greetings card from children under 12 from the centre.

Harrow Fire Station, Northwick Park Hospital, Belmont Health Centre and Edgeware Health Centre were all visited and over 150 gifts were distributed to staff working over the Christmas period at the services.

Dr Munir Datoo, President of Hujjat Stanmore said: “The doors of our centre are always open to our neighbours, from all or no faith. 

We wish to build bridges and continue to be a positive asset to society in London.”

Volunteer, Mubina Panju, said: “The experience left me and my five-year-old son in awe of how lucky we are to live in this amazing community.

“He described it as the opposite of trick or treating – as he gave the presents – and he wants to do this every year!”
