At a visit to long-term Fun Walk Trust sponsor Brown and Carroll’s office in Basildon last week, the Fun Walk Trustees John Baron MP, Sylvia Kent, Christine Brewster and Sandra Bastow were able to share the great news that pledges from local businesses to the 2024 Bonus pot have now exceeded £30,000 and to thank Brown & Carroll for their donation this year and in preceding years.

John Baron said:

“On behalf of the trustees and team, I would like to convey a personal thank you to Brown and Carroll, and to all the other sponsors that have pledged a donation to the 2024 Fun Walk Bonus Pot. They include Greater Anglia, Butyl Products Group, Tunnelcraft, IFE Global Logistics, Swan Housing Group, RIS Group, Mr Barrie Stone and others. The Bonus pot now exceeds £30,000 and this will be distributed on a pro rata basis to all this year’s participating organisations.”

“We continue to encourage good causes to register for the September Fun Walk, please come and join us to raise money for your community projects. For more information, please visit the Fun Walk website:”

In welcoming the Fun Walk Trustees, Steve Brown, co-founder and Director at Brown and Carroll, said:

“We have been supporting the Fun Walk since 2018 as this is a great way of providing important funding to many local good causes. It also aligns really well with our Social Impact objectives. We wish all participants well and look forward to hearing of the total monies raised.”

This year the sponsored walks can happen anytime during September and at any location chosen by the registered charity or local community group. With the generous support of local businesses, the Trust tops up the sponsorship money raised by each group on a pro- rata basis, which last year equated to a 40% bonus over and above the amount each organisation raised themselves.
