Young Muslims in Milton Keynes are planning to spend Christmas Day distributing free gifts and meals to the elderly in the town

Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Milton Keynes have said they will spend their Christmas Day providing free gift hampers and treats and bringing smiles to residents at care homes.

Saeed Nazir, the Muslim Youth Leader of Milton Keynes, said: “It is such an honour to extend a helping hand and to bring a smile to the faces of so many people. We feel like a family with the people we help and that is how they feel too.

"People may wonder why we take time out to help, but we enjoy doing the voluntary work we do because it is our religious obligation. Islam encourages us to help alleviate hardships and respect and honour our elders.”

Saeed said any elderly person who is spending Christmas on their own and are shielding or isolating because of Covid can register their interest to the AMYA MK on Twitter @AMYA_MK.
