Muslim community support police

8 May 2020

Croydon’s Ahmadiyya Muslim community showed their support for some of the borough’s frontline key workers recently with a donation of food.

Officers at Croydon Met Police took to Twitter to express their thanks on Wednesday (May 6), after revealing they were on the receiving end of dozens of freshly cooked meals courtesy of attendees of the Ahmadiyya Mosque in Croydon.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to the Ahmadiyya Mosque for their kind donation of meals for our police officers and staff,” a Croydon MPS spokesperson said.

“Representatives from the Mosque delivered these meals to our Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer earlier today.”

They were joined by Superintendent for Partnership and Neighbourhood Policing for Croydon, Sutton and Bromley Andy Brittain:

“Many thanks to our friends in the Ahmadiyya community for producing the lovely food. Thank you,” he said.

Like many boroughs across London, Croydon has seen an outpouring of volunteer actions to support key workers and the most vulnerable during the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis.

The Ahmadiyya community themselves are well-versed in volunteering and regularly undertake charitable actions like this outside of crisis moments like the current pandemic.

Frequent litter picks, soup kitchens and other communal efforts are staple’s of the community’s calender, under the tenet “Love for All, Hatred for None.”
