Farooq Aftab, event organiser and Deputy Head of AMYA says, “The weather was behind us and we had a great turnout with over 700 British Muslims raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for British charities. We have been inspired by the true teachings of Islam and we hope that by raising funds for the needy without any distinction of faith, colour or creed, this event will serve a dual purpose of not only helping charitable causes but also reminding Muslims and non-Muslims alike that Islam and its founder stood firmly for peace and unity within humanity.”
