The charity walk for peace is an event organised every year by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association (AMEA), a charity are committed to helping others, engaging with local communities and working for the common good who have a long history of raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for British Charities.

 

The Charity Walk for Peace is an annual event that occurs in a different borough each year. Any local charity can take part and the AMEA provides matched funding for all funds raised for the walk. AMEA covers all the costs for the event ensuring that every penny raised goes to the entering charities. This year the walk took place in Windsor Great Park. Thousands of people take part, including most of the Runnymede Scout Groups.

 

The 1st/4th group met up at Egham Rugby Club from where we took a shuttle bus to the start. After an opening prayer and welcome speeches the walk commenced at 11am. The five mile circuit walked across Smiths Lawn, past the Valley Gardens (in full bloom), down to the Totem Pole, past the Obelisk and back to the start.

 

We were well looked after throughout, with refreshment stations serving water and fruit every mile, and a tasty biryani served and a medal at the end.

 

Despite it being an extremely cold and grey day there were high spirits in the disparate collection of walkers from 1st/4th/5th comprising: four cubs, four scouts, various parents and siblings and Emily, Steve and Lawrence
