The British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) has been awarded Her Majesty the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The award was created by Her Majesty to mark the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and to recognise the outstanding contributions made to local communities by groups of volunteers.

Established in 2007 to celebrate ‘Muslim Heritage and making it accessible to all’, the BMHC has quickly become Manchester and the North-leading centre for Muslim culture. The Centre offers an active learning environment for both Muslims and the wider community alike.

It holds regular Islamic Heritage workshops, organises and holds an annual Islam and Science Conference. The Centre has developed and designed an interactive ‘Muslim timeline exhibition’ (first of its kind in the world), which was opened to the public from 2016.

With over 120,000 visitors a year, benefiting from a range of services, the BMHC always welcomes and encourages people to come forward and support the many community projects on offer, such as BMHC Scouts Group, exhibitions, community radio, and over 30 different initiatives supporting youth, women and other groups.

In a statement to The Muslim News Nasar Mahmood, Chair of BMHC, said: “The trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters of BMHC are grateful for the recognition, which can only spur us all to strive even harder to build a stronger and more cohesive society. The BMHC is an organization of committed people, the vast majority of whom are volunteers, dedicated to this cause and have proven over the years that together we can achieve our aspirations”.
