Charity Walk for Peace cheque photo 1

Show us the Money!

We had a lovely surprise this morning when a sponsorship cheque from taking part in the Charity Walk for Peace was presented to our team by the consort of the Mayor of Runnymede, Dr Brian Perry. You may remember we took part in the walk on the 25th of April the grounds of Windsor Great Park. It was a chilly day but we were excited to join with over 4500 participants representing 160 local charities and well worth the effort!

Thank you to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK for organising such a great event which enabled us to raise funds to upgrade our IT capabilities in line with our digital strategy.
