The Peace Partners team would like to wish you a joyous and peaceful Festive Season!
The end of a year invites us to look back and review what has happened during the period. The first months of 2021 were promising, and a hope started to blossom that a ‘normal’ life was within reach. This upbeat feeling of hope and positivity manifested itself in lots of different activities at Peace Partners, including a virtual fundraiser Quiz, celebrating our 5th anniversary, and a Sponsor Thank You webinar.
But then later in the summer something unexpected happened which took us by surprise: the resignation of our CEO and founder, Juli Hammersley. It took quite a few months for us to come to terms with what was a big change, and – in the end – we had to accept that we needed to modify some of the goals we had set ourselves for 2021.
With the New Year fast approaching we wish you a healthy and prosperous 2022. As a team and as a small charity we face new challenges, but we hope that you will feel – as we do – inspired to make this world a happier and more peaceful place.

Peace Partners report submitted this year (2020/21) to Associazione Percorsi, the secretariat to the Pledge:
Thank you for your invitation to notify you of the activities we have been pursuing, during the period 21st September 2020 to 21st September 2021, as a signatory to the Pledge to Peace.
As a UK charity we believe that the initiatives we have undertaken have contributed towards promoting a culture of peace amongst the individuals who have been their beneficiaries, and amongst the volunteers who have participated in contributing to making them happen.
This year our activities, influenced by the circumstances of the on-going Covid 19 pandemic, have included:
FURTHER PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES
In conclusion, we would like to mention that, in addition to the beneficiaries, up to 50 volunteers participated in these activities. The personal responses we have received from both groups has been overwhelmingly positive.
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the Pledge to Peace. We feel it is a wonderful honour to be involved, it inspires us to increase our efforts to make a difference, and is helping us further appreciate the importance of peace both personally, and as members of our communities.
