Worshippers at a Huddersfield mosque are the latest to back the fight to save A & E services at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Those who gather at the Masjid Ghausia Mosque in Lockwood are determined to do their bit to persuade health bosses not to move services to Calderdale Royal Hospital.

They have signed a petition calling for services to remain at Huddersfield and have also produced a video film which is being shown to community groups.

The video has been welcomed by those behind the Save A & E campaign group and posted on their Facebook pages.

“The film was shot at the mosque and we have been using it in our education classes to help spread the message.

“The young people who come to those classes then go home and tell their families and friends about the campaign.

“The Imam at the main Friday service spent several minutes telling people how important it is that we keep services at Huddersfield.

“Most of our 800 worshippers come from Huddersfield and this is a fight that affects the entire community in the town.

“Many of us have used the services or will need to use them in the future.

“We all ought to do all we can to make sure the services stay”.
