50 Organisations Register for September Virtual Fun Walk

John Baron MP: We thank local businesses for their continued support.

The event organisers are delighted to share that 50 organisations have already registered for the September 2021 Fun Walk. The 2021 event will repeat last year’s successful ‘virtual’ format that allowed participants to walk the distance anytime during September.

Last year’s event raised over £103,000 with an estimated 1,400 participants taking part. Local businesses’ support of the ‘Bonus Pot’ remains a key incentive for charity supporters to take part. Last year the Bonus Pot added 30% to the money raised in sponsorship by each participating organisation.

John said:
“Donating to the Bonus Pot enables local businesses to effortlessly support a wide range of local charities and good causes, and we are thrilled that several of our long-term donors have already pledged their support for the 2021 event. They include Swan New Homes, Anisha Grange Care Home, IFE Global Logistics, McDonald’s Restaurants Basildon and others. We remain very grateful for their generous contribution to the bonus pot”.
