They brought us gifts of food to mark the occasion. They also donated mutton and lamb for the Café.

Street Clean Cheetham Hill

On Tuesday 12th August, Wai Yin organised a street clean up in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester. The emphasis was on encouraging local people from different faiths to cooperate and share in the cleaning of the streets around places of worship. Yesterday, we cleaned up the streets between two local churches. Next month we will clean up the streets around two mosques and the local Sikh temple (Gurdwara). We were joined by members of the local Jewish synagogue as well. We would like to thank everybody who participated but especially Sundus Salam, our environmental improvement officer!
