The annual Charity Walk for Peace was held in May 2017, at the Docklands in the City of London. The aim of this fundraising event was to provide support to charities who rely on funds from such events.

On 6th December 2017, Charity Walk for Peace hosted a Cheque Presentation event at the Houses of Parliament. This event was held at the Palace of Westminster in Central London. Over £685,000 has been raised from this year’s charity walk which was distributed among 114 UK based charities. To date over £4.2 Million has been raised by Charity Walk for Peace and donated to 364 UK Charities based over the years.

This was followed by an introductory address by the President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association, Dr. Ijaz Ur Rehman. In his address Dr. Rehman thanked all the volunteers and charity partners who made this year’s walk a success and brief update on funds raised. He was joined by other MPs, Lords & Mayors who thanked the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community for its continued efforts in serving mankind. They also expressed their appreciation of such events which breaks down barriers between people from all walks of life, extending the true essence of uniting communities.

The national president of AMA UK, Mr Rafiq Ahmad Hayat, delivered the keynote address. In his address he acknowledged the efforts of the community for succeeding in raising a large amount of funds that were distributed among the various charities. He paid particular recognition to the charities and individuals who give up so much of their lives to help humanity in any way they can, especially in areas of conflict.

    Herts Young Homeless were fortunate enough to be one of the beneficiaries of this amazing event. We are humbled by the scale of the walk and the amount of money raised. It makes such a difference to small community charities such as ourselves. Thank you!

    Nottinghamshire Hospice was one of the beneficiaries and we are so grateful for the support we have received the money really does make a difference to people at a most difficult time in their lives. The walk was a fantastic day and we were made so welcome. And the day at the House of Lords was so humbling to see the fantastic work of the Ahmadiyya Muslims elders association. Thank you for all your hard work these events don’t just happen. They take a lot of organisation.
