Days before the Finsbury Park attack, students of the Jamia Ahmadiyya UK college, in Haslemere, joined in the relief effort to help victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

A group of 17 members of the youth association volunteered to assist Ahmadiyya charity Humanity First workers in Kensington close to the scene.

A college spokesman said: “We felt it our responsibility to help our countrymen and women at this hour of need.

“One group of five was working inside Harrow Club, packing and sorting food items for those affected by the fire. This also involved transportation of food supplies coming in through donations.

“Another three volunteers made their way to Latimer Road station to help oversee the deliveries and guide other volunteers to where the supplies were being transported.

“The rest of the volunteer crew remained in Westway Sports Centre and dealt with all the clothes and donations from the public. The aim was to divide and categorise everything and put them in boxes according to size so they are ready to be distributed to those in need.”
