On 10 November 2021 an event was held in Darul Amaan Mosque in Manchester to acknowledge and recognise efforts of various organisations and individuals who had helped Manchester City Council to distribute food, medicine and other support to vulnerable residents of Manchester during the lockdowns. The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Tommy Judge along with the Lady Mayoress attended the event to thank them personally.
Manchester city council sent a request to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) to ask if they could use Darul Amaan Mosque as a venue for their event.
The event was attended by forty-five guests from various voluntary organisations in Manchester. The Lord Mayor thanked them for their help during the lockdowns. He said that it would not have been possible for the local government to provide food and other support during lockdowns to all the vulnerable families, if it was not for the efforts of these organisations and individuals who came forward to help.
Imam Muhammad Khursheed from the AMC also spoke at the event and explained that Islam demands Muslims to help their neighbours and serve local communities. The Lord Mayor presented a certificate of appreciation to the AMC to acknowledge their charitable efforts during the lockdowns. The Regional President, Mr Sajid Arain also presented a gift to the Lord Mayor.
