About the Charity – Charity Walk for Peace

Our mission is to help society, to support charitable endeavours, to work to secure the common good, to demonstrate loyalty to country and nation, and to defend the dignity of mankind.

The Charity Walk for Peace is founded in the service of humanity, rooted in the call of duty and inspired by the love of God. Drawing motivation from the tenets of Islam which regard service to humanity as a moral prerogative, a spiritual privilege and a religious duty, Charity Walk for Peace aims to relieve the suffering of the poor, the destitute and the marginalised, and to promote peace, understanding and goodwill amongst people of all walks of life.

Becoming a Beneficiary of Grant Funds

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

Our strategy is raise funds and donate those funds to established local, regional, national, and international charities to help the most deserving of people.

Any registered charity or school can apply to be a beneficiary through our Grant Funding scheme. Our executive committee shall review the work the charity/school offers and, after a due diligence process, the charity is able to become a beneficiary of the funds collected.

The process is very simple and we will keep you informed.

Find out more on here or contact us using the details provided at the end of this presentation.

Matched Funding

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

We have thousands of volunteers who use various methods to collect funds. These include the traditional sponsorship forms; bucket and tin collection; charity dinners and corporate funding.  We then use these funds to match, up to a pre-determined maximum amount, the funds collected by the specific charity.

The matched-funding scheme is primarily focused at helping the smaller local charities to work with us and create awareness for the work we do together to help and assist the most deserving.

You can contact us or complete the online form on our website.

Charity Champions

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

Every year, men, women, and children raise thousands of pounds for charitable causes. Amongst these great people are those that work tirelessly to raise £1000 individually, some raising as much as £15,000!

 

To recognise such amazing achievements, we say a big THANK YOU and honour these special people with an invitation to special dinner where we shall also be presenting the new Charity Champions boxed jacket and blouse badges.

Working With Us

Everybody is Welcome!!

Every year we not only help raise more but we make new friends. Last year alone over 114 charities became beneficiaries of the walk, with many attending the walk, including schools, charity organisations, church and faith groups, MP’s, Mayors and Councillors.

As long as we all focus on our principle objective –

Our mission is to help society, to support charitable endeavours, to work to secure the common good, to demonstrate loyalty to country and nation, and to defend the dignity of mankind.

We can make a great difference to those less fortunate and work together in total harmony.
