Muslim youngsters from a Southfields mosque joined members of the armed forces to collect money for the annual Poppy Appeal.

The young members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association gathered at The London Mosque, in Gressenhall Road, Southfields, on Friday.

They travelled to Heathrow Airport and London’s rail and underground stations to collect money for the appeal.

There were more than 300 volunteers from the group aiming to raise £20,000 in total.

The Ahadiyya Muslim Community are running a campaign to contribute to the UK in different ways which includes blood drives, charity walks and interfaith events.

Home Secretary Theresa May said: “The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association has a long tradition of raising money for good causes and has raised more than £1.5m for various charities including the Royal British Legion.

” I welcome this latest campaign by their youth association and would encourage everyone who sees them collecting for the Poppy Appeal to give generously.”
