The organisers of the annual Fun Walk are delighted to share that thanks to support from local businesses the 2023 Fun Walk Bonus Pot has already reached over £20,000.
The ‘Bonus Pot’ is a key incentive for supporters of local charities and community groups to raise funds for their chosen cause, as it tops up the money raised in sponsorship by each participating organisation, over and above the amount they raise themselves.
Last year we were able to provide a 40% bonus, (meaning £40 was added for every £100 raised in sponsorship), and nearly £95,000 was raised in total by participating organisations.
This year’s event which will happen through September, will support registered charities, local schools and churches, grass roots sports teams and other community groups.
John Baron MP and Chair of the Fun Walk Trustees said:
“We know how difficult it remains for charities and local groups to raise funds on their own, so the Fun Walk Trust is there to coordinate this event, and allow them to focus on getting their supporters to raise sponsorship money for their walk.”
“We could not do this without the generous support of local businesses which this year so far, includes Sanctuary Housing, IFE Global Logistics, Greater Anglia, Anisha Grange Care Home, Butyl Products Group, RIS Group, Mr Barrie Stone and others.”
