Charity Walk For Walk 2016

Charity Walk for Peace made headlines for Silvertown when hundreds of walkers joined the scenic route around the Thames in the east of the city.

With perfect weather on their side, the event organisers inspired over 2,500 members of various local and national charities to come together and walk in solidarity for helping those in need.

Over 50 local, national and international charity representatives participated by taking part and raising awareness. Many thousands of other charity workers and members of the public spent quality time collecting donations. One such member walked door to door in his neighbourhood collecting money for specific charities whereas another member who owns a local shop donated £10,000 for the most vulnerable in our society.

The President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association, who fund the entire administration costs of the Charity Walk for Peace, said “It doesn’t matter how much someone donates, what is important is that we all get involved for the good of mankind.

Sir Robin Wales
Elected Mayor of Newham

An encouraging and inspiring message was delivered to the organisers of the Charity Walk for Peace by Sir Robin Wales upon the welcome by Newham Council:

I am delighted the annual Ahmadiyya Muslim Association’s Charity Walk for Peace is being held in Newham this year. This is the most ethnically diverse place in England and Wales and the Association’s aims mirror our work to develop strong, cohesive and integrated local communities. As well as bringing people from a wide range of backgrounds and faiths together, these walks also raise money for local and national good causes. I hope this year’s walk proves to be the most successful yet.

volunteerAt the start of the walk on the 29th May, Sir Robin asked the walkers to show him the back of their volunteer high vis jackets and said,

“this is what the Charity Walk for Peace stand for and this is what we all stand for

– Love for All Hatred for None!”
