Help Muslim youth group tidy Huddersfield town on New Year's Day
Public spirited volunteers from a UK Muslim youth organisation will be tidying up Huddersfield town centre streets on New Year's Day. "In Islam, 'Cleanliness is Part of Faith', so there's no better way for us to start the new year."

Hawzah News Agency (Huddersfield, UK) - New Year's Eve is one of the biggest – if not the biggest – party night of the year in Huddersfield and it is expected there will be larger amounts of litter on the town centre streets than normal on the morning of New Year's Day.

After a special prayer, members will be donning hi-vis jackets and heading to the town centre to pick up rubbish, sweep the streets, and make sure everything is tidy for the New Year.

 

 

As well as showing public spirit the volunteers hope to offset the cost of the New Year's Day clean-up which is borne by Kirklees Council.

The Huddersfield clean-up takes place as part of a day of clean-ups in 50 towns and cities across the UK by members.

 

 

Nadeem Ahmed, regional youth leader from Yorkshire, said: "We've been doing the New Year's clean-up for many years now, and each year we see more and more members coming to help.

"In Islam, 'Cleanliness is Part of Faith', so there's no better way to serve our faith and our country. There's no better way for us to start the new year."
