Charity Walk for Peace returns
26 charities stand to benefit from this month’s Charity Walk for Peace.
The annual fund-raiser is a 5k family-friendly walk, starting and finishing at Hogmoor Inclosure in Whitehill & Bordon, taking place on Saturday 20th May.
In 2022 the walk raised around £20,000, split between 16 charities.
The walk is run in partnership between East Hampshire District Council, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association and the Whitehill and Bordon Community Trust and seeks to support local good causes and foster strong communities.
Meer Anjum Pervaiz, Regional President of the AMEA, said: “It’s so great to see the walk growing year on year. We had only six charities when we first launched the event, and this year we have 26! Everyone in Whitehill & Bordon should come out and join us on the day for what will be a fantastic celebration of these wonderful charities and their vital work around East Hampshire.”
Registration for the walk takes place at 10.30am on Saturday, with the walk itself set to start at 11am.
The charities chosen to benefit from the event include: Challengers, Dementia Friends Alton, Dementia Friends Petersfield, Deadwater Valley Trust, Living Streets Bordon, Love4Life, Petersgate Infant School PTA, The Rural Refugee Network, The Vokes Trust, Age Concern Petersfield, Artscape, Attenborough Explorer Scout Unit, Cardiac Rehab Alton, Homestart Butser, Crossover Youth Centre, Alton Men’s Shed and Eggars School.
