The organisers are inviting local charities and community groups to register for this year’s virtual fun walk that will take place during June. Supporters can walk individually or organisations can host an event on any date during June, to raise money for their project or good cause. The event is free to enter and registrants receive a free kit with everything they need to run the event, including posters, finisher’s certificates and sponsorship forms.
The BONUS POT is a unique feature of the event, with funds donated by local businesses and individuals and then distributed to participating organisations on a pro rata basis in addition to the monies they themselves raise in sponsorship. This year’s sponsors include Greater Anglia, Anisha Grange Care Home, Tunnelcraft, Butyl Products, Mr Barrie Stone and others.
John Baron MP, Chair of The Fun Walk Trustees, said
“Last year’s event raised over £90,000 for local charities and good causes and with help from local businesses we hope to do even better with our Platinum Jubilee Fun Walk. This year’s sponsors so far include Greater Anglia, Anisha Grange Care Home, Tunnelcraft, Butyl Products, Mr Barrie Stone and others.”
“Entering a team is a fantastic way for groups to have fun outside, whilst raising money for a good cause.”
