14 East London Mosques Raise Thousands for Children’s Hospice

14 Mosques in East London have joined forces to raise an incredible £17,000 for Richard House Children’s Hospice. The hospice in East London provides specialist care for babies, children and young adults who have life-limiting, life-threatening or complex health conditions. In addition, a nurse-led team of clinicians, therapists, specialists and counsellors provide a range of support services to parents, siblings and the wider family during their time at the hospice.


The fundraising campaign took place in participating mosques on one of the busiest Friday prayers of the year. Mr Abdullah Dalal spokesperson for the fourteen mosques said:

“The Muslim community in East London has contributed to many charitable projects nationally and internationally. 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 15thyear anniversary being celebrated in 2015.”

So far an astounding £17,000 has been raised, with money still coming in.
