Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers of the Barleylands Fun Walk have announced that the 19th annual event will now be a virtual event which will run through September.
Families can take on the challenge and walk 2-5K anytime and anywhere during September.
Originally, the event was scheduled to be held on a date in September at Barleylands Farm, Billericay but as the public remains in a cautious state, the Event Coordinators have changed the event to adhere with government and public health guidelines.
The 2020 Fun Walk virtual event will give supporters the opportunity to walk the equivalent distance in a setting of their own choosing to raise sponsorship money, and we’re asking if you’ll do that for Kids Inspire.
John Baron MP and his team started The Fun Walk to commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, and since 2002 the event has gone on to raise more than £1.1 Million for charity with the help of local businesses donating into a Bonus Pot, and the fundraising efforts of its participants.
John said: “We know that charities need funding this year more than ever, and so we hope by holding a virtual event we can continue to support them. We are delighted that local businesses have so far donated over £20,000 to the bonus pot. We thank Swan Housing Association, Anisha Grange Care Home, IFE Global Logistics, Leonardo MW, Butyl Products Group, McDonald’s Restaurants Basildon and others.”
