Come forward for Charity Walk for Peace funding
The Charity Walk for Peace (CWFP) is calling for local community groups to work together and raise funds for charities and not-for-profit organisations.
The CWFP platform provides a wonderful way for small, local charities to engage with each other and raise valuable funds for projects on the CWFP platform.
The walk, which raises thousands of pounds for different charities every year, is being held in Whitehill & Bordon for the first time.
Local organisations and groups that provide a service to the community can apply to be one of this year’s beneficiary for both grant-funded projects and volunteer support by signing up by Friday 8 April.
The charity walks are organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association (AMEA) together with East Hampshire District Council (EHDC). This year’s walk is due to start and finish at Hogmore Inclosure on Saturday 21 May.
Cllr Julie Butler, EHDC Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Welfare and Community Integration, said: “The Charity Walk for Peace has raised tens of thousands of pounds over the years for local charities and good causes.
“This year we are moving it to a new location and expect to see new groups applying to take part and help us raise money. Don’t forget, charities can apply from anywhere in East Hampshire, not just Whitehill & Bordon.
“This is always a great event and I want to thank the AMEA for their dedication to supporting the charities and community groups of East Hampshire.”
M Zakariyya Choudhry, Regional President of the AMEA, said: “Last year we had a slightly smaller event to take account of the coronavirus regulations, but we hope the Charity Walk for Peace will be back to its best this year.
“We have a great new venue and a fun new course to walk - and we will be raising thousands of pounds for local groups.
“If you run a charity locally, make sure you apply to take part and your charity might end up benefitting from this great event.”
