I have worked with LMOS for about 18 months now, Although I’d travelled around the world widely, I’d never been into a mosque and had always been curious, so when I saw details on Meetup for an Open Day at the Penny Lane mosque, I went along.
At that time, I had taken a step back from a relentless corporate career, and was looking for something worthwhile to get involved in. Something that would connect me to more than my job, to something bigger than that.
I met two key LMOS organisers there and found them so friendly and welcoming, but more than that, I realised they were doing some really great stuff out in the community i.e. feeding the homeless in the city centre, donating food to local food-banks, collecting litter with local groups and councilors, working with refugees in our city, engaging with interfaith dialogue, getting together for social gatherings and collecting clothes for local people and causes.
I joined them at a forthcoming volunteering event, could see where I could fit in, and found it so rewarding on so many levels, that they can’t get rid of me now!
