Free Money!

As reported elsewhere on this website, we participated in the annual Fun Walk at Barleylands Farm in September this year, with our sponsored participants raising over £1600 in sponsorship money.

Million Pound Fund

The unique benefit of this event is the Bonus Pot.  Each year John Baron, our local MP, gets local businesses to sponsor the Fun Walk and their generosity creates a Bonus Pot which is distributed amongst the Fun Walkers' charities in proportion to the money each participant raised.

On Friday 22nd November President Ben Clarke and Past President Peter Greene attended the Fun Walk Trust Bonus Pot presentation at Anisha Grange.  John gave a brief talk to the assembled representatives from the numerous local charities who participated in this year's walk, praising their generosity in raising such a large amount of sponsorship, and especially thanking all the Bonus contributors who were providing such great financial support.  He said "The 2019 Fun Walk has been another huge success and brings the money raised for good causes since 2002 to over £1,169,000." John thanked also all the volunteers who helped make the event a success.

What a Bonus - £820!

This year the Bonus Pot exceeded £35,000 which meant that each participant received a bonus payment of 50% on top of their individual sponsorship. After group photographs, the charity representatives collected their cheques, which in our case was for £820.

John was on hand to greet each charity as they left with their cheques for a fine photo opportunity
