Five charities have scooped awards and £500 prize money for their work.

Jesuit Refugee Service UK, The Delicate Mind, New Roots Tower Hamlets, the Lama’s Pyjamas charity shop and Muslimaat were recognised by interfaith organisation, Faith and Belief Forum, at a Royal Society of Medicine ceremony on November 27.

Faith and Belief Forum director, Phil Champain, said: “If we are to truly extend the benefits of our city to all, then we need to ensure all Londoners get fair access to services, we need to alleviate deprivation, reduce social tension and promote inclusion.

“The fact that so many small and modest organisations made up of people of different faiths and non-religious beliefs collaborate to achieve these aims gives hope and inspiration.”

Dr David Dangoor DL, chair of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith said: “This event promoted and connected the unsung heroes of London’s faith and belief communities.”
