The 23rd annual Peace Walk takes place this weekend with all invited to join the event.

This annual demonstration of community solidarity aims to create a stronger Luton by fostering better understanding between people of different faiths and backgrounds.

Ryad Khodabocus, Head of Community Relations & Development for the Luton Council of Faiths, said: “The Peace Walk is an annual gathering where communities across faith and cultures, the authorities and charities join together in solidarity for peace in Luton.

“This year the Peace Walk coincides exactly on the United Nations International Peace Day.

“Over the years we have captured the imagination of our local schools running a year-round programme with them. This year, we are expecting more schools joining us and they will do some presentations around Peace and Harmony in Luton.

“One school will join us for the fifth year in a row and we are so proud. The day also will announce the winner of the 2019 Peace Artwork competition in our primary schools”.

The Peace Walk will feature the following Friendship Stops:

1.30pm – St. Luke’s Church, High Street, LU4 9JY

2.30pm – Hockwell Ring Mosque, Barley Lane, LU4 9HT

3.20pm – Leagrave Methodist Church, High Street, LU4 9LQ

4.00pm – Al Hikmah School Hall, High Street, LU4 9LE.

5.00pm – End
