The Muslim group behind a major religious festival in East Worldham welcomed East Hampshire District Council’s chairman ahead of a charity walk in the area.

Cllr Lynn Evans visited the Ahmadiyya Muslim festival Jalsa Salana, an annual celebration attended by 38,000 worshippers.

She met key figures from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association and heard more about the Charity Walk for Peace.

This five-mile fundraising walk will raise money for local charities but will also serve to build bridges and strengthen links throughout the community.

Cllr Evans praised her hosts for the day and called for others to take part in the walk, to be held on September 9.

She said: “The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association works tirelessly to support charities and help the more vulnerable people in society, both here and abroad.

“The Charity Walk for Peace will not just raise money to support local families in East Hampshire but, just as importantly, will help strengthen this community.

“The Ahmadiyya preach a message of love for all and hatred for none, and they really put that message into practice.

“It was a pleasure and a privilege to go to Jalsa Salana to meet the organisers and learn more about the group.”

The Charity Walk for Peace will be held on September 9 at 11am and will run from Bentley station to the Alice Holt Forest Centre.

It will raise money for two local charities, the Southern Domestic Abuse Service and Home-Start.
