CMF at the official launch of the Royal British Legion East Surrey Poppy Appeal

CMF Executive Member, Suzy Webb was honoured as a guest at the and Peace March at the Morden Ahmadiyya Mosque. This was an historic occasion as it was the first ever which has been launched from a Mosque in this Country. It was a lovely evening with representatives from Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, Chelsea Pensioners, local and national politicians, The Royal British Legion, and other invited guests.

It was very special when the stage was taken by all the children present. A full and moving ceremony was performed, including the Last Post. We heard personal stories from the descendants of the thousands of combatants from the India sub-continent who served with distinction alongside British troops.

Last year the Ahmadiyya Mosque raised half a million pounds for the Poppy Appeal and their youth section will be doing a peace march and collection for this year. One of their more senior members personally collected £39,000 last year. ‘Love for all and hate for none’ is the Ahmadiyya motto. They really do set a wonderful example of community engagement and harmony.
