We at the Bolton Council of Mosques are a key part of the Bolton Interfaith Council.
We attend regular Interfaith Council meetings with the Christian Churches and Hindu Forum.
It is our duty as members of the wider Bolton community to show support for other religious festivals — just as we expect others to support ours.
We work with other religious groups to ensure the wider community is engaged and involved.
Regular activities include inviting school groups, Local Authority staff and business to visit our Mosques.
We are proud to be part of Bolton Wanderers Football Club’s ‘Unity in Diversity’ cohesion project.
We provide training and programmes promoting interfaith and community cohesion.
Charity is a key tenet of the Muslim faith.
For many years the Bolton Council of Mosques has supported the distribution of funds raised through the Mosques in Bolton.
These have been donated to emergency relief services assisting people affected by conflict or disaster around the world.
The funds raised have helped those in need with economic development, agriculture, health, housing and infrastructure.
Our work reveals the commitment of Bolton’s Muslims to supporting the needy and vulnerable across the world.
You’ve generously given Eid gifts for children in hospital, raised funds for Burmese cyclone victims, donated in the aftermath of The Boxing Day Tsunami, towards the Bangladesh appeal and recently to the Covid 19 pandemic Iftar releif packs.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
