The Charity Walk for Peace Charity Reception Dinner was held at York Gardens Library in Wandsworth on Friday February 23rd 2018 where a number of charities attended to show their support for the upcoming Charity Walk for Peace being held on Sunday April 29th 2018 in the Windsor Great Park in association with Runnymede Borough Council.
The Dinner provided an opportunity for participants to meet the organisers and sponsors of the annual Charity Walk for Peace and brought together a host of charities and beneficiaries, MP’s, Mayors and local community groups, as well as representatives from the media, with the objective of introducing them to this year’s National Walk, its aims and objectives, and its fundraising efforts throughout the previous year.
Chairman of the Charity Walk for Peace, Mr. Zaheer Jatoi addressed the guests present at the dinner and expressed his delight at their support for the upcoming walk.
“I am grateful to you for taking time out of your busy schedules to join us today. With your help, we hope to raise £1,000,000 this year for UK charities and I am looking forward to seeing you all the Charity Walk for Peace.”
