On 25th April, Sustainable Merton were in Hyde Park, London, to support the annual Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association Charity Challenge.
The challenge was established by the AMYA in the 1980’s and invites people to walk, run or cycle to fund raise for charity.
Young Muslims travelled from around the country to take part in the 31st “Mercy for Mankind” charity challenge and it is hoped that the event will raise £400,000 this year, bringing the total raised to £2,000,000.
Cricketing legend, Matthew Hoggard MBE, was also invited to join the event to help rally the troops and raise money for such a worthwhile cause. He commented: “Mercy for Mankind – I think mankind says it all. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what your background is. We all have the same beliefs, the same upbringings and to see so many youngsters, raising money for great causes is great”.
