Association of Non-Stun Abattoirs (ANSA), Lozells Central Mosque and the
local community in Lozells have joined forces to organise a fundraising event
to support the ‘Help The Heroes’ Campaign.
The event will sell Halal Food to the local communities with all donations
going towards the national Help The Heroes Campaign.
The event has been organised to convey solidarity and unity following the
disgraceful and barbaric attack on a member of the Armed Forces, Lee Rigby
in Woolwich, London.
Event Organiser, Lozells resident and Communication Director of ANSA,
Mohammed Saleem said: ‘”It is important at this difficult time to convey full
support of the armed forces. We are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with all
sections of society to condemn this barbaric murder. It is testing times for all
of us, let us ride out this storm sensibly and cohesively.”
The event is being supported by all three Lozells & East Handsworth Ward
Councillors, Cllr. Waseem Zaffar MBE JP, Cllr Mahmood Hussain and Cllr.
Local Councillor and Chairman of Birmingham City Council’s O&S Committee
for Social Cohesion & Community Safety, Councillor Waseem Zaffar MBE JP
said: “The event is the real face of the Muslim Community in Birmingham, not
the handful of extremists that try to divide our community. This attack on a
member of the armed forces, one of thousands of brave men and women that
protect our communities and the national security of our country, has caused
great concern to people of all faiths and no faith.”
