Prestonians got a little surprise during Wednesday (7 June) evening while sorting their tea.Advertisement
Pupils from an evening school in the city centre have been knocking on random doors with foodie treats.
The Madrasah Kashif-Ul-Uloom Islamic school in Avenham Road have been handing out the meals ‘as a gesture of love and compassion’.
A leaflet put with the meal explains the Muslim religion ‘puts great emphasis on fulfilling the rights of neighbours’.
It goes on to say ‘we cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love’.

Jade Cannon, who lives in Chaddock Street and studies at the University of Central Lancashire, was one of those to receive the meal.
She said: “It was such a lovely surprise to get a goody bag of food that warmed our hearts and tums.”
Her housemate Amy Waddington, 22, said: “I had a very nice surprise after a long day at work, being handed some lovely free food from some glowing smiles.
“I was half expecting it to be my housemates a little bit worse for wear after visiting Manchester.”
Other Prestonians have been sharing their surprise and delight at receiving the food.
