Funfare Children Walked for Peace at Abbotsbury Primary School
With the help of over 250 participants at Abbotsbury Primary School’s Fun Day raised over £400 on Saturday 07 July 2018.
Management of Abbotsbury Primary School has shown a keen interest after Charity Walk For Peace (CWFP) Mordan region arranged a sitting with the Headteacher and staff. School management was very pleased with the work CWFP is doing to support local charities and especially schools as there is always funds needed to buy pieces of equipment and to offer different services in the school.
A Charity Walk for Peace has been arranged at school’s Fun Day to make people aware of the work done by CWFP and to raise funds for the school. A food stall was also offered to set up in addition to the walk that was happily accepted by the school’s management. Since then the school staff was very happy and excited about the whole program.
A week before the walk another meeting was organised with deputy headteacher along with the regional chairman CWFP to finalise the program and route for the walk. The walk was advertised through school’s newsletter and posters along with the Fun Day event announcements.
The walk started at 12:30 with the brief introduction about CWFP. Children were very excited about the walk and despite the warm weather, some decided to run and completed a couple of laps. Parents extremely enjoyed and appreciated the idea of supporting the school by the CWFP.
Biryani stall was one of the busiest stall at Fun Day and the stock was finished before estimated time. School teachers were very happy with the outcome of the event and praised the generosity and hard work of the CWFP team. With mutual agreement, It has been decided to do a cheque presentation ceremony at the school assembly on some suitable date.
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.
