More than 50 volunteers took to the streets of Croydon on New Year’s Day to clean up following the winter festivities.

On Tuesday, volunteers from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association worked their way across the borough sweeping and litter picking after leaving their early morning prayers at the Croydon Regional Mosque on St James’ Road.

The clean-up was one of a number of initiatives the AMA set up over the Christmas period.

The group organised a blood donation session, gave out food to the homeless on Christmas Day and collected money for Save the Children UK.

Croydon council provided the group with bin bags, litter pickers and brushes.

Naseem Butt, Regional President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Croydon, said:”Our members have enjoyed living in Croydon for decades and so any opportunity to help our local Community is a much welcomed one.

“Cleaning the streets of Croydon also presents us with an opportunity to become better Muslims as cleanliness in Islam is an important part of a Muslim’s faith.

“We are a peace loving and well organised association which will continue to help make this great part of London an even better place to live in.”
