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.
