Fourteen East End mosques in Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest have joined forces to raise an incredible £17,000 for local children’s charity Richard House Children’s Hospice.

The fundraising campaign took place on the busiest Friday prayers of the year, December 26.

Spokesman for the fourteen mosques, Abdullah Dalal, told The Muslim News: “We decided to come together and raise money for a local charity, and selected Richard House due to its amazing work with children and young adults, and with its 15th year anniversary being celebrated in 2015.”

Mary Meekings, Head of Community and Events at Richard House, said: “We are very grateful to everyone who donated money during Friday prayers. The fundraising total is incredibly generous and will make a huge difference to the families who use our services at Richard House.”

Richard House, based in Beckton, provides care and services to children with life-limiting, life-threatening and complex healthcare conditions and their families from London and the surrounding area.

Participating mosques in the fundraiser: Quwwat-Ul-Islam Society Masjid (Upton Lane), Islamic Centre Upton Park and Newham United (Selwyn Road, Plaistow), Markaz ud Da’wah wal Irshad and East End Islamic Centre (Plashet Grove, East Ham), Ilford Muslim Society Masjid-E-Dawatul Islam, Seven Kings Muslim Educational Trust and Masjid Al Falah (Redbridge), Masjid-e-Tauheed and Masjid ul Hidayah (Manor Park), Forest Gate Masjid (Romford Rd), Masjid-E-Usman (Ashville Road, Leyton), Leytonstone Masjid (Dacre Road, Leytonstone) and At Taqwa Trust (Chadwell Heath).
