GMCA supports local communities during Ramadan 2021

Since its inception, Grantham Muslim Community Association (GMCA) is trying to reach out to the communities living around and trying to extend a helping hand in collaboration with other charities.

GMCA provides meals to YMCA

During Ramadan 2021, ­­­­­Grantham Muslim Community Association (GMCA) members has provided meals to YMCA on several occasions. GMCA has been serving the local community since its initiation and promises to continue its charitable work for the diverse community of Lincolnshire.

ECHO – East Coast Homeless Outreach

This Ramadan GMCA supported the above charity by supplying meals to their centre visitors.  The support given was well received.

              I understand your assistance was generously supported by the Grantham Community Mosque and I would like to ask if you could kindly pass 

on my sincere thanks to all who were instrumental in making this support possible.”

“At ECHO (East Coast Homeless Outreach) we regularly serve between 20-30 people in Lincoln who are either rough sleeping, in temporary 

accommodation or are struggling to access nutritious food and your donation of time, expertise and resources means we were able to provide

a healthy, tasty and nutritious meal to all our friends who visit us on a Sunday.”

Jeannine, ECHO.

Help Given to the Local Charity Passage

Grantham Passage is run by Grantham and District Poverty Concern Group which was established in 2001 to support the vulnerable members of the local community who are affected by poverty and homelessness.

The passage offers services through various churches in Grantham 7 days a week, providing a free, safe and non-judgmental meeting place and company for its clients whilst serving them hot food and drinks. It also gives assistance with access to services, responsible agencies and other community support.
