The Spen Valley branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) continued their humanitarian work by helping with a collection for a local food bank on Saturday 23 September 2017.  The collection took place at the ASDA superstore in Dewsbury with provisions collected for Batley Food Bank which helps the needy in the Batley and Spen Valley area.

The Youth were joined by the local MP for Dewsbury, Ms Paula Sherriff, and Mr and Mrs Leadbetter, the parents of murdered MP Jo Cox.  Since the death of Jo Cox the local community has worked together to help each other and combat hatred and misunderstanding.  The Spen Valley branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association has been actively involved in this campaign by feeding the homeless, holding charity collections and hosting an Eid party for the local community earlier this month.

In total 20 crates of food were collected and £458 in donations.

Both Paula Sherriff and Sharon Kingswood thanked all the volunteers who gave up their time to help the collection. Mrs Kingswood also thanked the generosity of the ASDA shoppers for their donations.

Mr Manzoor Ahmad, leader of the Spen Valley AMYA, thanked ASDA for arranging the collection and for providing the opportunity to help the local needy.

Ahmad stated that serving humanity is core belief and practice of the AMYA and they will continue to help all of their neighbours who are in need of assistance.
