#VisitMyMosque Award Giving, Speakers House

The Muslim Council of Britain, by kind permission of the Speaker, Rt Hon John Bercow, hosted an award giving ceremony for mosques which took part in #VisitMyMosque day 2017.

Volunteers from dozens of mosques nationwide were presented with certificates by the Secretary General of the MCB, Harun Khan and the Deputy Speaker, Rt Hon Lindsay Hoyle MP to celebrate their contributions to community cohesion in their local communities earlier this year.

Harun Khan, Muslim Council of Britain Secretary General, said, ‘This is an organic initiative, grassroots in nature, organised by local Muslim communities themselves. It is bottom up, not top down. We hope that even more mosques will take part and welcome in the great British public on 18 February 2018, as well as other days in the year.’

The Speaker, Rt Hon John Bercow MP said: ‘Visit My Mosque highlights the active efforts of mosques up and down the country in reaching out to their local communities and engaging in public life. I commend the volunteers of the 150 mosques that took part in 2017 on their great efforts and the Muslim Council of Britain for facilitating the day.’

The next #VisitMyMosque  day will take place on Sunday 18 February 2018! Mosques are encouraged to sign up here: http://www.visitmymosque.org/register!
