"After hearing of the terrible fire at the church last December, Mr Hussain contacted a member of the congregation with the offer of putting on a fundraising event and has been most helpful with the organisation since then. Many thanks to him and his staff."

Amran added: "We always want to help the community, if there is anyone else who we could help with a good cause, do let us know."
