Charity Cheque Presentation Evening 2018

£1 million pounds has been raised and hundreds of thousands of pounds were donated to UK Charities by the Charity Walk for Peace at Britain’s Largest Mosque on Friday December 7th, 2018.

Over 550 distinguished guests, alongside a host of MP’s, Mayors and Councillors attended the prestigious Charity Cheque Presentation Ceremony held in the Main Hall at the Baitul Futuh Complex, Morden, where cheques for a variety of amounts were presented to over 150 charities from across the UK.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK [AMEA UK] sponsored and co-hosted the ceremony to a packed main hall following on from an incredibly successful Charity Walk for Peace held earlier this year in the Royal Borough of Runnymede within the grounds of Windsor Great Park.

One of the highlights of the ceremony was the recognition awards presented to ‘Charity Champions’ from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK, who have over the course of one year worked tirelessly to help raise the £1 million pounds for so many different charitable causes that span the breadth of the United Kingdom.

A number of eminent guest speakers took to the podium and spoke on the work of the Charity Walk for Peace and AMEA UK and their own respective charities that were being supported.

Guest speakers and VIP’s:

  • Siobhain McDonagh, MP for Mitcham & Morden
  • Sir Edward Davey, MP for Kingston & Surbiton
  • Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton & Wallington
  • Cllr. Mary Curtin, Mayor of Merton
  • Major Christian Jensen, British Army
  • Edward J Watts, Patron Her Majesty the Queen
  • Guy Upward, Assistant Director of the Royal British Legion
  • Commander Mark McEwan, Metropolitan Police

The Chairman of the Charity Walk for Peace, Mr. Zaheer Ahmed, said:

“2018 has been an incredible period of time for the Charity Walk for Peace. We have raised an incredible amount of money and the hard work and effort from the members of AMEA UK and the Charity Walk for Peace is a testament to their loyalty for their country, to their fundraising efforts and to their overall genuine and humbling commitment to serving humanity and helping make a difference to the lives of so many.”

One of the largest donations made was to the Royal British Legion, for the incredible amount of £501,978, presented to Guy Upward, the Assistant Director for Fundraising. This donation follows the ground-breaking efforts from the members of AMEA UK who spent three weeks manning poppy stalls around the UK and across most train and tube stations in London.

Dr. Ijaz ur Rehman, National President of AMEA UK, said:

“I am extremely humbled to be in a position where the efforts of so many hundreds of volunteers from our association have culminated in reaching a milestone in our fundraising, resulting in £1 million pounds raised, beating all our previous records. It is the Grace and Blessings of God that He has enabled us to be in the situation we find ourselves in today and I cannot thank the members enough for their efforts. I am extremely grateful to all the charities that have not only joined us today but those who supported this year’s Charity Walk for Peace held in Runnymede. It has been a historic year on so many levels.”

    Apologies for the delay but I must now at least record my thanks for inviting me and other members of Addlestone Canoe Club to this fantastic cheque presentation event. It was a spectacular event and great to meet so many of your wonderful worshipers and volunteers. Thank you all especially for all the endless hours, time and effort you committed to raising and sharing out so much in matched funding and all the immense organisation involved.

    It was also good to find myself on a table with a GLF school governor, (Community SSB member) of Chestnut Park Primary, Bushra Ahmed, and learning of her involvement showing boys from Glyn round your spectacular Mosque. I was a governor there for 16 years and founder member of GLF.

    It is so re-assuring to find so many diverse people willing to give their time and efforts for the benefit of others and for peace in this world.
    Thank you all so much and wishing you all every success for everything you do and are trying to achieve.

    Kind regards

    David Moss

    A HUGE THANK YOU from everyone at The Canterbury Care Centre in Guildford, Surrey.
    We thoroughly enjoyed the walk, and the presentation evening was awesome. What a fantastic building and the welcome we received was the warmest ever.
    The money raised will make a real difference to the lives of our members.
    With respect, peace and love,
    Katherine, The trustees, volunteers and members.
