    As part of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, a local mosque at Acrrignton hosted a health day last weekend to create awareness among community members.

    The successful event, held at Raza Jamia Masjid, was hailed by Mayor of Hyndburn Cllr Abdul Khan for helping hundreds of people get a health check and find out more about issues relating to cancer, dementia and women’s health, Lancashire Telegraph reported.

    “This was an amazing event and much needed within the community here,” Cllr Abdul Khan said.

    “It was important for people to discuss issues to bowel cancer and I think culturally we do not do that enough.

    “It was a great turn and lots of stalls and I would like to thank the organizers and the venue for hosting this event.”

    Helping Community

    Shakil Salam, from Lancashire Bowel Cancer Screening Program, also praised the mosque for providing free health services to their community.

    “This was first ever event at Raza Jamia Masjid in Accrington and many families came to seek information and advice. Blood pressure checkups were very popular,” Salam said.

    “This was a perfect opportunity to bring the community together to access a range of service providers from health, social, community and voluntary sectors all under one roof.

    “After the success of the event the Mosque Management Committee has offered us to host a regular health and wellness event.

    “It was really important to highlight the importance of health, and help the local community understand their own health needs and, importantly, that we are here to support them and community has welcomed us with open arms

    “I would like to thank everyone who took part including all the stall holders, Mayor and Mayoress of Hyndburn and the local community for supporting us. Special thanks to Raza Jamia Masjid management team and volunteers.”
