Mark's Eid Message(June 25, 2017)
At the end of what has been a testing month for Muslims observing Ramadan, I would like to wish a very happy Eid to everyone celebrating in Preston. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Muslim community of Preston for their continued support over the last year and during the recent General Election campaign.
We have experienced challenging times recently in Manchester, at the Arena and in London – at London Bridge, Grenfell Tower and Finsbury Park and I am proud to represent a constituency whose faith communities pull together in times of need to overcome division and promote our shared values through kind actions.
Wishing all my Muslim constituents, a peaceful and joyous Eid and a prosperous year ahead.
