Annual Fundraising Walk for Chinese Community Centres
9th April 2016 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
The British Chinese Project invites all members of the public to join in our fundraising walk to raise much needed funds for 11 Chinese community centres across Britain.
Join the British Chinese Project for a 12-mile walk across London to help raise funds for 11 Chinese community centres, which provide vital services to the British Chinese community. The walk will take participants from London’s Chinatown to various community centres and end up in the historic area of Limehouse, north-east London where Old Chinatown was located.
Funds raised from the walk will help provide support services such as translation services, outreach programmes and activities promoting cultural exchange between British Chinese and the wider community.
The British Chinese Project also hopes to use the walk to encourage British Chinese to be more politically engaged and make their voices heard in the upcoming London Mayoral and Greater London Assembly Elections on May 5 and the European Union Referendum on June 23.
