The Charity Walk for Peace (CWFP) was founded in 1985 by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association (AMEA) UK (an auxiliary organisation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community), with the aims to relieve the suffering of the poor and promote peace, understanding, and goodwill amongst people from all walks of life. A distinctive feature of the CWFP is that all of its organisers are unpaid volunteers.
Over the years, the CWFP has raised and donated over £7.4 million to people in need, partnering with over 600 UK-based charities. Last year, CWFP raised over £1.2 million for charity, the largest restricted funds collected were for the Royal British Legion – within a matter of two weeks during the Poppy Appeal Campaign. Over 900 CWFP volunteers collected £690,000 for the noble cause that the Poppy Appeal serves.
On Tuesday 24 May 2022, the CWFP Baitul Futuh Regional President, Dr. Tayyab Ahmad Mansoor, presented a cheque of £500 to his Worshipful The Mayor of Merton Council, Cllr. Michael Brunt for his nominated charities.
The Mayor of Merton Council, Cllr. Michael Brunt said:
“Thank you for this contribution towards the Mayor’s charities this year. The charities are Marie Curie, the Christian CARE Association of Merton and The Forest of Memories. It is a great joy to receive this. We had a very successful year, despite the start of the year in the pandemic, so I appreciate that. Also, I appreciate your message of Love for All, Hatred for None has been the theme of everything we have done together over the last year. So thank you for that.”
