– Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders set GBP240,000 Target for UK Charities
– SUNDAY 19 JUNE, 10.30AM START, BAITUL FUTUH MOSQUE, MORDEN
Age will prove no barrier when elders of a British Muslim community take part in a national charity walk raising funds for the British Heart Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital and a host of local charities.
Thousands of members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will converge on Britain’s biggest mosque, in Morden, Surrey, on 19 June to start the 2011 Ansar Charity Walk. The Ansar are the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community who are over 40 years old and, in previous years, walkers well into their 70s have taken part.
The annual walks – one of two taking place annually – is part of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community’s on-going effort to give something back to the country in which they reside. Ahmadiyya Muslims believe God rewards good works and therefore acts of charity are of utmost importance.
