Mosques across Bolton have made an outstanding £18,000 donation to a Bolton health trust charity, seeking to make a lasting and meaningful difference in their community.
The Bolton Masjid Chanda Committee (BMCC), which represents 11 mosques in Bolton, raised the money during the month of Ramadan.
The BMCC donated the money to Our Bolton NHS Charity to transform the well-being of staff, patients, and communities at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, The Bolton News reported.
“We at BMCC believe the act of local mosques giving donations to hospitals is a beautiful testament to the spirit of community and compassion,” Babu Adam, Chair of Bolton Masjid Chanda Committee, said.
“These generous contributions serve as a lifeline for hospitals, enabling them to support patients in need.
“By partnering with local mosques, hospitals not only receive financial aid, but they also foster a sense of unity and solidarity within the community.
“The collaboration between mosques and Bolton NHS Foundation Trust exemplifies the power of collective action and the importance of extending a helping hand to those who require it most.
“We will continue doing this as it is charity, which is encouraged in our religion, Islam.”
Sharon White, Director of Strategy, Digital, and Transformation at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are so grateful to every single person that donated money to Our Bolton NHS Charity through their mosque.
“This money is already making a real difference to the health and wellbeing of our brilliant staff and the patients and families they care for.
“We are really fortunate to have worked with the Bolton Masjid Chanda Committee for a number of years, and we look forward to building upon that partnership well into the future.”
