A restaurant in Botley has donated hand sanitisers to places of worship in Southampton.
Purbani Botley, a small Indian restaurant, in partnership with Global Supplies Protection, an international supplier of PPE, has donated these hand sanitiser stations to four local places of worship in and around Southampton and Botley.
These two businesses wanted to help the local community by giving something that would last a long time and benefit a lot of people.

Official Announcement by Southampton Medina Mosque Trust Ltd.
Asalaamualaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
In light of the recent announcement from the government regarding the wearing of face masks in places of worship from the 8th August.
We would kindly request all attendees of the Mosque to wear a face mask upon entering, as you will be *refused* entry if you do not have one with you.
This is now enforceable in law from the 8th August onwards and so the Mosque will not have any discretion on the matter.
As a reminder,
Please come to the Mosque with Wudhu,
Wear a face mask
Bring your own Prayer mat
Bring a bag for your shoes.
In Sha Allah this coming Jummuah we will remember those heroes who sacrificed their lives for us. Namely, The heroes of our great National Health Service.
