The team at Cheadle Mosque battled the wind and rain to set up a “Samosa stall” after Friday prayers on November 11 to raise money for Children in Need. After prayers, worshippers munched through 400 samosas and countless pizzas to raise money for Children in Need – there was hardly any room left for cake!

Office Manager at the Mosque, Arshad Sheikh, said “Children in Need is such an important cause, we were really glad we could do our bit…Despite the weather, we raised over £480 for charity; everybody was so keen to support the cause – we could have raised more but we ran out of food!”

Chair of Cheadle Mosque, Saeed Akhtar, told The Muslim News, “Charity and helping others is an important part of our faith. The Mosque has a long track record of raising money for local causes; over the years we have supported St Anne’s Hospice, The Seashell Trust, The Red Cross, Stepping Hill and Wythenshawe Hospitals and many other charities. In fact in 2015 alone, the congregation at Cheadle Mosque donated over £40,000 for charity.”
