Young people from Keighley took part in a nationwide clean-up campaign.

Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Keighley picked-up litter in the town.

Their effort was part of an initiative by the UK-wide association to tackle rubbish-strewn streets and parks, linking in with the Great British Spring Clean.

And it was the latest in a series of community ventures staged by AMYA.

It also organises blood donor sessions, charity collections, homeless food provision and visits to hospital children's wards and nursing homes.

Dr Adeem Rubani, for the Keighley association, said: "Some of our members have enjoyed living in the area for a long time and so any opportunity to help the local community is much welcome.

''We are peace-loving British Muslims and will continue to do all we can to serve our community as best we can and wherever there is a need.

"It is an essential tenant of our faith to serve our fellow man and society at large.

"As a youth movement, AMYA ensures that from a very early age a sense of citizenship and belonging to wider society is instilled in youngsters."
