Residents arrived at the London Mosque in Gressenhall Road, Southfields, to donate to the National Blood Service this week.

The event was organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) to encourage more local people to sign up to the service.

The AMYA has a regular programme of structured activities with a mix of academic, sporting, social welfare and charitable events for its members.

Organiser Shiraz Sethi: "Donating blood is a great and simple way of being of service to fellow human beings."
