Mosque open day at Khizra Mosque
#VisitMyMosque Open Day
Khizra Mosque participated in the MCB's led #VisitMyMosque today and opened its doors to the wider community who enjoyed a short programme with speeches, exhibitions, mosque tour, henna painting, calligraphy and a group performance by children from the supplementary school.
There was a very good turn out as we had visitors from all corners of Greater Manchester visit us and from as far as Cumbria. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day which saw some people enter a mosque for the first time and others visiting Khizra for the first time. There were a number of dignitaries that spoke at the event and how such events were important in helping improve understanding, creating dialogue, breaking down barriers and building good relationships.
Thank you to everyone for attending today and thank you to all the volunteers that made it happen. It was great to see you all and I hope to see you all again.
Hate crime awareness week events held at Khizra Mosque
As 'Hate Crime Awareness Week 2017' comes to an end, we reflect on the weeks events.
Our volunteers at 'Communities for All & Khizra Mosque' campaigned throughout the week In order to reach out to the local community and promote the significance of reporting hate crimes. A Hate Crime is 'any criminal offence that is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person's characteristic or perceived characteristic' (HCAW, 2015).
As a third party reporting centre, we work alongside local authorities to tackle hate crimes and support victims of this particular crime, regardless of race, religion, age, sex or gender.
So if you have suffered, or know of any one who has fallen victim to any forms of hate crime, please report to us immediately!
Methods of reporting are listed below:
Call the Greater Manchester Police on 101
Call Manchester City Council on 0800 083 0007
Report anonymously via the 'True Vision' website online at www.report-it.org.uk

Diabetes eye disease talk at Khizra Mosque
We had guest speakers from the charity Action for Blind People working on a project to raise awareness of diabetes and the importance of regular eye tests in helping to prevent sight loss.
The North Manchester Eye Health Champions Project aims to benefit at least 3,000 people who are at risk of sight loss, focusing support on people from South Asian or African and Caribbean descent who have a greater risk of developing diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma. This was an opportunity for people to come and learn about the importance of eye testing and the risks it can cause if ignored or done on a regular basis. We also had free health checks at the event.
Dementia talk at khizra Mosque
Recently we held a talk at khizra Mosque on the important subject of dementia. It was good to see our audience engage in the discussion and actively participate in this interactive session. We had a good turnout of those who were keen to learn about this important condition. We continue our health awareness sessions on a regular basis. Thank you.

Scouts at Khizra
466 Manchester Khizra Beavers learned about looking after the environment and the importance of not dropping litter.

They also finished their poster making competition for Autumn with the orange team just winning by a small margin.
If your children would like to participate, why not bring then along to our beavers sessions a every Sunday 11-12 in the community hall. If you would like to volunteer, please get in touch also.
Paediatric Basic Life Support event at Khizra Mosque
We continue with health awareness events at Khizra Mosque and recently held a session and had an excellent turnout with almost 70 people turn out to attend this event with lots of positive feedback and lots of basic skills learnt by the attendees. We had special guests to facilitate this session and was beneficial and well received. We have several events planned in the coming weeks and hope more can attend and benefit from these sessions. Jazakallah khairun.
Homeless drop to homeless on the streets
Recently our volunteers from khizra Mosque were out on the streets in Manchester city Centre handing out icare winter packs and new warm jackets to those less fortunate and struggling in the streets in the bitter cold.
This was another opportunity to help those who are less fortunate than us in this community. It was truly touching to provide much needed winter packs to the homeless living rough in our city and struggling in this cold.
We pray Allah accepts this donation and effort from all the volunteers involved in any part of this great work and eases the difficulty of those in need.
Community cycling club at Khizra Mosque
This weekend we started the new community cycling club at the centre.
This particular session was to train the attendees so they are equipped to take groups from the local community on a community based ride under their supervision.
The trainers on hand were from Cycling UK along with a member from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).
The next step now is for you or anyone you know to get on your bike and join us on the next scheduled ride which will be end of this month and every month there on.
Its a great way to get fit or stay healthy, so it might be time to invest in a set of wheels and give cycling a go.
Everyone is welcome as it is steady paced for whatever your experience or expertise. Please do get in touch for more information.
Blood donation registration at the centre
We recently held 2 blood donation registration sessions at the centre. We were able to register 130 people over these 2 sessions. We hope to hold a clinic in February at the centre where blood donation will take place.
Homeless drop to homeless shelter
Recently our volunteers at khizra Mosque dropped off long life food items which we collect every month along with winter packs containing jackets provided by iCare to a homeless shelter in north Manchester. These winter packs were purchased through generous donations by our brothers and sisters for this project. We would like to thank everyone that donated the food items and money for these icare winter packs especially our generous sisters who donated a significant amount along with many food items. We also had a generous brother who donated many brand new warm jackets for the homeless.
The staff at the homeless Centre were grateful and said these items will be given out as soon as possible to homeless service users at the Centre and beyond.
We provide long life food every month to local families and to homeless people via your generous donations. Please continue to donate food items for the needy in the locality with donation of long life items into our food storage containers located near the reception at Khizra Mosque.
