Wardleworth Community Centre shares food with needy throughout Ramadan

Date published: 20 May 2020

Throughout Ramadan, Wardleworth Community Centre has distributed over 100 meals and fresh fruit to some of the community’s most vulnerable.

Keeping in with the community centre’s tradition of sharing food, staff and management at the centre have given food to central Rochdale’s most vulnerable, including the elderly, refugees and asylum seekers.

The initiative has been supported by Action Together Rochdale.

Mohammed Miah said: “These are difficult times and the month of Ramadan is about togetherness, generosity and support.

“It is in that spirit that Wardleworth management have approached this year’s initiative.”

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed worldwide by Muslims as a month for fasting. It is believed to be the month when the Holy Qur’an was revealed and honours the values at the heart of Islam, such as compassion and service to others.

The end of Ramadan is marked by the holy festival Eid-ul-Fitr, which means “Festival of breaking the fast.”

Eid is expected to begin this weekend.
