Local hero takes on second charity walk during Ramadan

Ramadan charity walk

101-year-old Dabirul Choudhury is taking on his second walking challenge while fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Last year, the local hero raised more than £420,000 for charities during lockdown and was made an OBE for his incredible efforts.

This weekend on 24 April, Mr Choudhury is inviting others to join him by walking in their local park or garden, with the aim of reaching 1.5 million steps collectively. Funds raised will help people worldwide affected by Covid-19, as well as supporting those in refugee camps

  • All shops will reopen including services such as hairdressers and beauty salons.
  • Restaurants, bars and pubs can serve food and alcohol to customers outdoors only.
  • Gyms, libraries and community centres will reopen.

Remember the basics to help tackle Covid-19

As we move through each of the phases in the roadmap, we must not forget that Covid-19 is still here and infectious. Please remember to:

  • Carry on with 'hands, face, space, fresh air':
    • Wash your hands regularly
    • Wear a face covering in shops, on public transport, and in other enclosed areas
    • Keep a safe distance from other people outside your household (two metres where possible)
    • Meet others outside in fresh air to reduce the risk of passing Covid-19 on.
  • Book a free test if you’re experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 and stay at home until you get your result.  
  • Take up the offer of vaccination when it is your turn.

Everyone has a part to play to keep themselves, their family and friends and the wider community safe
