7th Goodmayes Sponsored Walk (2017)

On Saturday 25th March 2017, 7th Goodmayes took to the streets of Redbridge and walked from Gardens of Peace in Hainult to Al Madina Masjid in Barking, to raise money for Human Appeal and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

This was the tenth anniversary of our annual sponsored walk which we started in 2007, and have raised over £25K for numerous charities.

Along the route they stopped off at various masjids, including South Woodford Masjid, Gants Hill Masjid, Redbridge Masjid, Ilford Masjid and Islamic Society (Balfour Road), Seven Kings Masjid, Al-Ansar Centre and Ilford Islamic Centre Masjid (Albert Road).

Our special thanks to all those who made the day possible, from Scout Leaders, parent volunteers, custodians of the Masjids, who allowed us to rest and pray, and the proprietor of Garden of Peace who gave a very emotional speech as well as a representative of Human Appeal who encouraged the children to engage in acts of charities for those less fortunate than themselves.

Finally, a big thanks to all out children who walked the whole day to raise money for our chosen charities. Thank you all.

To date we have raised £3,367.50 (our target was £3,000) for this sponsored walk. The donation page on JustGiving is still open so please donate generously.
