Four years of making a difference
On 11th April, Peace Partners celebrated its fourth year as a charity! It hardly seems possible that we have been operating for four years! Nevertheless, much has happened and much difference has been made! This time last year, we had just announced our National Lottery Community Fund award. Since then, we have put the funds to good use towards the Peace Education initiatives we are supporting; our regular fundraising has continued to the benefit of both our humanitarian and peace education causes.
To focus on one particular highlight, amongst many, on 21st September, International Peace Day, we hosted a 'Practice Peace' forum in Croydon, attended by amongst others the Deputy Mayor and the Imam, which was streamed live over the internet and featured on the day's PeaceCast.tv broadcast.
Preparations for expanding our support of the Peace Education Programme have been underway for a while, and although we have had to cancel events because of COVID-19, we are looking at increasing our use of internet-based distance forums instead. This month we have launched fundraising appeals in support of the Trussell Trust food-bank and St Mungo's homelessness emergency responses.
Thank you to everyone for your generous support, your collaborations, your interest and for making the last four years Peace Partners such great charity. We are looking forward to an ever more engaged fifth year!
