To mark the nationwide ‘Visit My Mosque’ Day a group of Muslims took Islam out of a city mosque and into a care home.

Tom Finney Care Home was visited by The Light Foundation during Sunday (3 March).

Led by Nadeem Ashfaq the group brought sweets, treats and conversation to the residence off Flintoff Way.
