The Forest Women’s Interfaith Network held their Interfaith Friendship Pilgrimage for Unity and Diversity in Chingford on Sunday. This event has been running for last five years, however it has previously been organised to take place in the south of the Borough. This is first year the group have organised their Interfaith Friendship Pilgrimage in Chingford.
Mr Duncan Smith, the MP for Chingford and Woodford Green attended the pilgrimage on Sunday, spending time marching and speaking with people from a large cross-section of faiths represented in the Borough.
“I marched with the Waltham Forest Women's Multi Faith pilgrimage yesterday, celebrating the diversity of religion which we have here in Chingford and Woodford Green.
I did so because at a time so soon after Britain experienced three appalling terror attacks it is important that we come together to support tolerance and peace and never allow hate to divide us.”
