Town centre vigil  for Manchester victims tonight

FAITH and community leaders will hold a vigil in the town centre tonight, remembering victims of the Manchester bombing.

The gathering will take place at the Heart of Steel monument at Minster Gardens from 6.30pm.

Church and mosque leaders have been invited, along with representatives of the local authority emergency services.

Rev Joanne Archer-Siddall, chair of the Rotherham Faith Leaders’ Council, said: “Faith Leaders in Rotherham are most concerned that there will be even more victims of this horrendous act, namely people from our local community who are Muslim.

“We stand together to protect them in the name of peace and justice.

“Please stand with us to show that we will not match hate with hate — that we as faith communities and people of conscience stand together to protect all society from evil and extremism.”
