Teams across the UK have continued the Neighbourhood Cleanup campaign in their local areas.
The team in East Ham were on the streets on the 15th of December and engaged with their local community as they cleaned the local high street. Amazing work and great engagement with the community.
Why not set up a Neighbourhood Cleanup in your area?

The National Neighbourhood Cleanup campaign was launched on the 13th September 2015 as part of the official launch of iERA’s One Community department. We based this campaign on the hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “…removing a harmful thing from the path is a charitable act.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
Armed with litter pickers and black bags, teams across the country (including Newcastle, Stockton, Bradford, Huddersfield, Leicester and across London) hit the streets and parks to clean up the local community.
They also had our One Community Neighbourhood Cleanup leaflets, which they handed out to non-Muslims to inform them about this campaign and why, as Muslims, this is something that is important to us.
