Muhammad Ashraf, director of Cambridge Central Mosque, said: “Having just celebrated the joyous day of Eid al-Adha, in which we are reminded of the countless blessings bestowed upon us by the Divine, we as Muslims feel compelled to help those who are less fortunate and in need.

“As our local organisations have been reporting, the cost of living crisis is worsening, and therefore this timely initiative, which has been so generously sponsored by our partners at Islamic Relief UK, will hopefully be a respite to families and individuals in our community here in Cambridgeshire who have fallen upon hard times.”
