In the spirit of Ramadan and Eid, our volunteers have been distributing food packages to key workers in our area, including GP and dentist surgeries, the police and fire departments, waste disposal teams and staff at local schools.
These packages are a small gesture of thank you to our local key workers for their tireless efforts to serve our communities during extraordinary circumstances. As we have not been able to invite our local partners and neighbours to Hijaz to join us for evening meals during Ramadan, we have distributed delicious home-made food to our neighbours in Hinckley and Nuneaton.
Wonderful feedback from recipients of our food parcels:
“Islamic community near Hinckley provides 1,700 meals for key workers in town ‘Our food packages are a small token of gratitude for their great efforts.’” – Leicester Mercury, 16th June 2021
A Gift of Gratitude to key workers:
Hijaz Community volunteers delivered 150 food packages to Hinckley police department and Leicestershire Police Headqarters.
Officers and staff at Hinckley Police Station, and Leicestershire Police’s force headquarters, have gratefully received hundreds of lamb curries which have been prepared and cooked by volunteers from Hijaz Community.
The meals have been donated to the force in the spirit of Ramadan. Shaykh Siddiqi, Head of Hijaz Community, said: “We appreciate that the police make our communities safer. As a gesture of our appreciation, Hijaz Community wanted to offer home-made food packages to all the staff who work tirelessly on the front line. Our food packages are a small token of gratitude for their great efforts.”
Chief Constable Simon Cole said; “Lots of officers and staff are observing Ramadan and many will be able to end their daily fast with this delicious food. We are very grateful to Hijaz Community for their generous donation and appreciation at a time when our staff have faced additional pressures during the pandemic.” Leicestershire Police
