80 Organisations Register for September Virtual Fun Walk

The event organisers are delighted to announce that 80 organisations have now registered for the 2021 Virtual Fun Walk. The sponsored walk which has been an annual event since 2002, is a fun challenge for participants, with lots of media coverage and helps local Charity and Community groups generate much needed fundraising for their good causes.

John Baron MP and Chair of the Fun Walk Trustees, said “It’s wonderful to see so many returning groups from around Essex, and this year we have several new Schools, Rotary Clubs, Hospital Charities and Church groups planning to take part.”

The event organisers are hoping to beat last year’s total raised of £103,000 and with the Bonus pot getting closer to £25,000, it’s looking like it could be another great year.

Donating to the Fun Walk Bonus Pot is also a great way for businesses and individuals to support their local community, and we could not run the event without them. The 2021 donors include: Swan New Homes, Anisha Grange Care Home, Butyl Products, Leonardo MW, IFE Global Logistics, Tunnelcraft, McDonald’s Restaurants Basildon and others.
