A mosque in Sheffield has raised nearly £1,400 for the hospice which cared for its late chairman.

Members of Bodmin Street Mosque in Attercliffe clubbed together to support St Luke's Hospice.

They raised £1,360 at a special celebration on June 26 marking the Muslim festival of Eid Ul Fitr.

Haji Mohammed Sadique, the mosque's former chairman, was cared for at St Luke's in the months before he died of cancer two years ago.

A similar fundraising event during Eid last year raised just under £1,000 and the mosque has pledged to continue to support the hospice.

Megan Senior, community fundraising manager at St Luke's Hospice Sheffield, said: "We are delighted that the Bodmin Street Mosque supported us in such a positive way. We now look forward to building on this extremely important relationship in the future."
