STONE WALK FOR PALESTINE – Sunday 13 May

Starting with a Palestinian lunch at Stone Station Community Centre the Walk for Palestine is a leisurely two miles along the Trent and Mersey Canal returning by the river to finish at the Peace Pole in Crown Meadow.

Donations will be shared between Sumud Palestine and the Stafford Beit Liqya Twinning Group.

Commenting, Angela Glendenning said

“We walk for peace with justice for Palestinians and Israelis.”

This is a time of the year, with spring in the offing that many charities are thinking of innovative ways in which they can raise money and awareness of important issues in a fun and engaging manner.

As such, an invitation has gone to anyone who is in support of the plight of Palestinians to get together to help make a difference. On Sunday 13th May 2018, Sumud Palestine, Stafford Beit-Liqya Twinning Group and Stone Quakers have got together to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

The event starts at 12.45 with a delicious Palestine lunch and an opportunity to meet individuals aware of the deep rooted difficulties and injustices faced by those living in the region. Both Palestinians and Israelis campaign for peace and work together in solidarity to support progress in the West Bank and Gaza and this fundraiser, happening here in Staffordshire, will help to send money to fund and to support their efforts.

Meeting at Stone Station Community Centre (ST15 8ER) at 12.45 to eat and socialise, participants will then have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon walk of just over 2 miles along the beautiful Trent and Mersey Canal and Westbridge Park before returning along the river to the Peace Pole in Crown Meadow.

It’s sure to be a very pleasant occasion and one which benefits many suffering in difficult circumstances.
