Religious communities unite to save refugee centre
The interfaith walk will raise money for Salusbury World
People of all religions are coming together for an interfaith walk to raise money for a refugee charity threatened with closure.
The Times exclusively revealed last week that Salusbury World refugee centre will shut unless it raises �50,000 by August.
Set up in Salusbury Primary School in Salusbury Road, Queen’s Park, more than a decade ago, the centre offers support and guidance to refugee children and their families. However, its future is in doubt after funding cuts.
The walk has been organise by the interfaith forum Pathways, and will include members from ten faith communities.

Steve Derby, a Pathways adviser, said: “This is the first event of this kind in our neighbourhood. I hope it will vividly demonstrate interfaith cooperation and harmony and raise urgently needed funds for an outstanding cause.”
The walk is one of many planned fundraisers for the charity, and comes after schoolboy Ali Ozlat launched a petition to save it which he has sent to the Prime Minister.
