CARING city Christians showed their support for BAME key workers with a presentation of gifts outside Worcester’s Guildhall.

Members of the Green Christian in Worcester group presented Worcestershire Muslim Welfare Association secretary Mohammed Iqbal with a gift box of environmentally friendly skin care products as a token of their appreciation.

The group was convened during the Covid-19 lockdown to mobilise local Christian communities and other religious and non-religious communities to reflect on and act in response to the climate change.

Tom Piotrowski, co-convener of group said: “Whether we are motivated by our religious beliefs or whether our motivation to care for each other comes from simply being compassionate and decent human beings, Covid-19 has united us al in our desire to create more caring and compassionate communities.”

Mohammed Iqbal who represented the largest mosque in Worcester said: “The gifts were absolutely wonderful, however the gesture to give and reach out to our community was really very special.

“Throughout the pandemic we have all excelled helping each other, no matter what our faiths are or who we are, we have all come together as one.”
