Hartlepool hosts successful North-East Charity Walk for Peace organised by Muslim association

More than 60 men, women and children took part in Saturday’s Charity Walk for Peace organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association in conjunction with Hartlepool’s Nasir Mosque in Brougham Terrace. Bringing people of all faiths and walks of life together, it saw participants walk around the park up to five times to promote understanding and raise money for good causes. Nasir Mosque imam Tahir Selby said: “We are very pleased to help and promote the Mayor’s chosen charities, I was a Sea Scout when I was young and saw the benefits of belonging to such groups.

“Likewise, we are always trying to support the food banks, they are doing great work in these difficult days.”
