A Muslim youth group helped raised cash for a children’s cancer charity at Crystal Palace FC last Saturday.
Members from the Raynes Park, Southfields and Croydon group of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) lent a hand collected money for CLIC Sargent.
Saturday’s collection was done as part of ongoing charity bucket collections at Selhurst Park Stadium.
Farhan Khalid, the AMYA member from Raynes Park said: “We all were willing to strive for one common purpose – helping the less fortunate.
“The boys really had a good time, despite the rain, collecting for the charity and it was a fun and memorable day
“For Muslims, service to humanity is a religious duty – this will help us to realise the value of assisting in charitable initiatives, and to understand the importance of helping those from all walks of life, irrespective of colour, creed, religion or race.”
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.
They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Nicola White said: “AMYA have been a great support to CLIC Sargent over the past years helping to raise a great amount of awareness and donations for children and young people with cancer.”
Mr Khalid added: “Through our charitable donations, our fundraising programmes for charities and our community work programmes, we demonstrate our commitment to good citizenship in line with our principle of Love for All Hatred for None.
“As a community, we are dedicated to peace and contributing to the well-being of the country.”
