‘Charity Walk for Peace 2019 Proud to Donate £15,000 to Local Charities’
Local charities walked away with £15,000 on Friday December 6th after they received the proceeds of this year’s Charity Walk for Peace.
16 charities received money raised through the annual Charity Walk for Peace, organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association in association with East Hampshire District Council (EHDC).
The walk, held in May this year, was the third annual walk with East Hampshire District Council. More than 300 people took part in the walk along a 5KM route around Petersfield.
Gill Kneller, EHDC Chief Executive, said:
“This is the third year we have worked with Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK to put on this fantastic walk and each time it has got bigger and bigger and raised more and more money for charity. The work the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association has done for this district and across the country is exceptional and we are very much looking forward to hosting the walk again next June. We are very lucky in East Hampshire to have such a strong and active voluntary sector and I am delighted that we have been able to support so many charities through this year’s walk.”
Dr Atta ul Quddus, Regional President Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK said:
“The aim of the Charity Walk for Peace is to strengthen bonds and promote peace and community cohesion. Among the key principles of Islam, one is to help and care for those in need and to live in peace with our neighbours. The walks allow us to help local people by supporting the fantastic charities that do so much great work in East Hampshire.”
Next year’s walk is already being planned and will be held on 6th June 2020.
The Charity Walk for Peace was founded in the service of humanity, rooted in the call of duty and substantiated by our mission actuated not by consideration of reciprocity or reputation but rather our desire to win the pleasure of God through service to his creation. Our aim is to relieve the suffering of the poor and to promote peace, understanding and goodwill amongst people of all walks of life.
The Charity Walk for Peace is an initiative of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association – part of the UK’s oldest established Muslim community. Inspired by the tenets of Islam, the Charity Walk for Peace aims to relieve suffering and serve mankind regardless of colour, creed or race. By bringing people together to help others it works to promote peace, engender greater understanding and promote goodwill amongst people from all walks of life.
Since its inception in 1985, the walk has been held at different venues across the UK with thousands participating each year. To date, over £8.9 million has been distributed to over 600 UK registered charities. A number of regional charity receptions and walks are organised throughout the UK culminating with the annual event organised to benefit various charities that provide practical help and support to vulnerable people.
We want to help society and support charitable endeavours and demonstrate loyalty to our country and nation. The distinctive feature of the charity walk for peace is that all organisers are unpaid volunteers and have no administrative costs. All operational costs are met by membership subscriptions.
