A Slough based volunteer is busy delivering supplies to victims of the Coronavirus despite personal loss of his own.

Arshad Mehmood is a member of the Ujala Foundation - a non-profit charitable organisation based in Slough at Manor Park Pavilion.

Member of the foundation Gaye Jeynes, of Granville Avenue said: "Hospitals, fire station and police station have been fed by this team.

"I would like to give a special mention to Brother Arshad, one of our volunteers who within the last few weeks has lost his wife to COVID-19.

"This has not stopped him from going out and making sure that people are supported in many ways even making sure that young families have enough nappies and milk to feed their babies.

"The team have been outstanding and courageous. I have had to ask for help myself because I am in lockdown for 12 weeks."

Gaye was originally part of the team of seven volunteers made up of Arshad Mehmood, Zulfiquar Warsi Ali, Fakim Jumbacus, Farah Malik and two others before she was advised to isolate at home.

The Ujala Foundation describes its mission as being to empower communities by creating a social hub where sustainable projects can be developed and financed. In more normal times it has a youth group which meets every Saturday between 2pm and 4pm.

But the Coronavirus outbreak has given it a new challenge - delivering much needed provisions to people isolated at home.
