A record-breaking 26 charities stand to benefit from this May’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 20 May.
In 2022 the walk raised around £20,000, split between 16 charities. This year more charities than ever before will be reaping the benefits of this community-spirited event.
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 20 May, with the walk itself set to start at 11am.
Registration will be available on the day or you can register in advance by contacting EHDC Community Officer Lisa Clements by email -
