The young people also visited the Royal Infirmary Children's Hospital in Doncaster, Pinderfield Hospital in Spen Valley, Calderdale Royal Hospital in Huddersfield and Scunthorpe General Hospital.

On Christmas Day, the group will be offering a free taxi service in Huddersfield to the elderly in order to help them reach Christmas services in churches and meals within their local community centres.

“Islam urges every person to partake in charitable giving, and that even an act of kindness towards another is charity. AMYA has and continues to instil young people with a sense of civil responsibility, and a desire to promote harmony within our local communities. Our members have enjoyed living in Yorkshire for decades and so any opportunity to help our local community is a much welcomed one”

– Nadeem Ahmad, Regional Youth Leader for Yorkshire
