2023 Fun Walk gets ready for launch

The countdown has begun! With just a few days remaining to the start of the 2023 Fun Walk event, 70 local charities and community groups have registered and over 2,000 supporters are expected to complete their sponsored walks during September.

There is still time to register a group or organisation via the Fun Walk Trust website: www.thefunwalktrust.co.uk. Supporters can raise money for any local charity or community group by completing a 5km walk during September and asking their friends and family to sponsor them.

The Fun Walk Trust helps charities, local schools and churches, grass roots sports teams and other community groups raise funds for their projects and initiatives.

The Fun Walk team recently visited Anisha Grange Care Home in Billericay to launch the event and to thank the staff there for being long-term supporters of the Fun Walk. Over £25,000 has now been donated to the 2023 Bonus pot, which will not only help participating organisations directly but also acts as a real incentive for their supporters to take part.

John Baron MP and Chair of the Fun Walk Trustees said:

“We remain truly grateful to the local businesses who have chosen to support the local community through a donation to this year’s Fun Walk Bonus Pot. They include Swan Housing, IFE Global Logistics, Greater Anglia, Anisha Grange Care Home, Butyl Products Group, Tunnelcraft, Mr Barrie Stone and others.

We look forward to seeing and sharing all the photos of people taking part.”
