HAYES Muslim Centre in Pump Lane won the award for Best Elderly Services at the first Beacon Mosques initiative held by Faith Associates consultancy on Saturday.

Beacon Mosque Standards is a worldwide accreditation system for mosques, which are measured against standards of best practice.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, the MP for Hayes and Harlington, attended a Faith Associates open iftar (evening meal) during Ramadan this year and highlighted the outreach work of the mosque.
