Touching pictures from the Birmingham mosque that's running a Christmas soup kitchen

Earlier this week we brought you the news that volunteers at a mosque in Birmingham were going to help feed the city's needy at Christmas, while many existing services are closed.

Birmingham has one of the worst rates of homelessness in the country, and the group of around 15 volunteers were expecting approximately 150 people to visit every day from December 24th - January 1st.

Birmingham Central Mosque has been busy, organiser and community activist Kasim Choudry told i100.co.uk.

The team has been greeting and feeding low income families, refugees and homeless people:
