Mosque opens doors to public
PEOPLE from all walks of life packed into a Teesside mosque as it opened its doors to the community.
The open day at Jamia Masjid Al-Medina mosque in Middlesbrough proved a huge success, with people turning up to meet members of the Islam community.
Everyone received a hot meal, drinks, cakes and biscuits and guided tours of the mosque were also offered.
The event took place on Visit My Mosque day, a national scheme aimed at fostering a better understanding of religion.
The Middlesbrough effort was aimed, in particular, at helping the most vulnerable people in the area, including the homeless, asylum seekers and refugees.
The event was coordinated by the Waterloo Road mosque, the Mithai Mahal on Abingdon Road provided hot food and Westbrook Lettings sponsored the leaflets handed out.
