The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Slough has stepped up its efforts to support the local community by doubling their regular food donations to the town’s local support groups.

President Atiq Ahmad Bhatti said: “With the second National Lockdown starting later this week we are doubling our donations to local support groups to help as much as we can during these challenging times. We are here to help and serve and will continue to do so, whatever the situation.”

Meanwhile Slough Ahmadiyya has held its 14th annual Peace Symposium – on Saturday October 24.

The theme was ‘true justice and peace’ and the Symposium was held ‘virtually’ due to the coronavirus pandemic and attended by over 150 participants.

Guests included the High Sheriff of Berkshire Mary Riall, the mayor of Slough Cllr Preston Brooker, as well as representatives from Thames Valley Police, Slough Outreach, Slough Borough Council, Burnham Parish Council and the Royal British Legion, Burnham.

President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Slough & South Bucks, Atiq Ahmad Bhatti, told guests: “I am truly humbled by the large number of participants who attended our Virtual Peace Symposium. It is always such a rewarding platform where so many different faiths, communities and community leaders are able to come together and speak about commonalities amongst one another and how we can continue to make a difference to those who need our help and support.”
