Fun Walkers

Welcome to the website of The Fun Walk Trust

The 2018 Fun Walk took place on
Sunday afternoon, 2nd September, at Barleylands Farm.

We had a perfect day for the walk
and a huge crowd turned up to take part.

The Fun Walk takes place every year at Barleylands Farm, Basildon, to raise money for charities and good causes. The event takes place in May but is usually postponed to July in any General Election year.

Each year it goes from strength to strength, and in 2013 the Fun Walk became a registered Charity. It is now officially known as The Fun Walk Trust (Registered Charity number: 1151626).

Many local projects now see the Fun Walk as their main fundraising event, in what is a fun afternoon for the whole family. There is music, a superb BBQ courtesy of “Team Handsome”, plenty of other refreshments and a large field full of stalls—the aim being to raise awareness as well as money. The Walk is supported by its family of volunteers and by Barleylands farm who kindly host the walk.
