Noor Ul Islam Trust of Leyton, London, held its Awards of Appreciation on January 8 at the House of Commons where fundraisers were awarded trophies and medals for raising over £27,000 during Ramadan.

Noor Ul Islam Trust aims include helping those in need, both locally and internationally. Previous appeals and support have gone to Whipps Cross University Hospital Maternity and Diabetic units, Age UK, NSPCC and to victims of the Japanese and Haitian earthquakes.

Worshippers at Noor Ul Islam supported the fundraisers in Ramadan, the month of fasting and patience, to help those in desperate need of help. This time the money raised went to the sick, needy, orphans and widows in Bangladesh, Palestine, Syria and Sudan.

There were four categories of award presentations which were: Youth Award, Fundraising Award, Volunteer Award and Outstanding Contribution Award.

Leyton and Wansted MP John Cryer paid tribute to the trust for their national and international fundraising.

In a statement to The Muslim News he said, “In the month of Ramadhan the volunteers at Noor Ul Islam excelled themselves by tirelessly working to raise money for those in other countries. Despite fasting during the day and engaging in long prayers at night the Noor Ul Islam team raised a record amount. The “fitra” as it is known is aimed at ensuring the poor are also able to enjoy the festival of Eid.”
