A team from Cheadle Mosque spent their Eid al-Adha “sharing the joy” with emergency services workers, charity volunteers and hospitalized children.

First up was the Cake Dash, Cheadle Mosque volunteers delivered giant cakes to the Police and Fire Services, Ambulance staff, Stockport Council, Manchester Airport and a local charity – Human Appeal International.

In a statement to The Muslim News, a spokesman for Cheadle Mosque explained the gesture, “We wanted to say ‘thank you’ to all those unsung heroes who give and care every single day.”

The teams also shared gifts with the Treehouse and Starlight children’s wards at Stepping Hill and Wythenshawe hospitals respectively.

Well over 120 gifts had been donated by the Mosque’s congregation for this cause in the days leading up to Eid. Gifts were also distributed to the older patients on wards B3 and B6 at Stepping Hill Hospital.

Usman Choudry, one of the trustees at the Mosque on Wilmslow Road told The Muslim News, “We were honestly overwhelmed by people’s generosity, we wish to thank them from the bottom of our heart.”

“There is no better feeling than being able to brighten up another’s day when they are going through a hard time – hence spending Eid sharing gifts with others and letting them know that we care is really important to us,” added Farooq Rafiq, one of the Mosque’s volunteers.
