Tea and Cakes at South London Islamic Centre

South London Islamic Centre hosted a tea party to express thanks to local residents for their patience during Ramadan when prayers very late at night inevitably brought road traffic to the area. Mr Mohammed Ijaz (Chair of Trustees) spoke of SLIC's gratitude. Other speakers were led by the Mayor of Lambeth (Cllr Saleha Jaffer) for whom SLIC is her own place of worship. The Mayor expressed her great pride in Lambeth with all its diversities and mentioned that Faiths Together in Lambeth would be among the Mayor's charities during her year of office.
