The group of volunteers as young as two-years-old from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) had the pleasure of enjoying the life stories of the residents.

The visit formed part of the AMYA's wider community and humanitarian activities which it carries out all year round and across the country.

An AMYA spokesman Saeed Nazir (Muslim youth leader) said: "To serve mankind is part of our faith and we always try our very hardest to undertake community projects, particularly in our local areas.''

''It is a matter of great pride that young British Muslims, under the banner of AMYA, have been serving the good people of Milton Keynes, as well as other areas across the country, for decades''

AMYA focuses on helping young Muslims become better citizens and fulfil their religious obligations of serving God and humanity.
