It was a very busy year for the charity in 2021.
Despite Covid 19 continuing to severely restrict live fundraising event opportunities, the Charity was successful in exceeding its fundraising budget at a level of c £15,000 for the period to 31st October 2021.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed and made that happen.
This success was due in the main to the fantastic support the charity received to its online events, via its London Marathon Team and from a series of personal fundraising via various challenges.
Our most notable achievement however was to significantly increase the number of grants we awarded. We are delighted to advise that these numbered 26 across a variety of different sports.
These grants funded South East Essex sports clubs with defibrillators, a host of different equipment and to various event organisers, covered the cost of medical cover on race days. The total of these grants totalled c£13,000
During the height of the summer, we were very pleased to hear that the defibrillator we installed at Jubilee Beach, Southend in 2020, was instrumental in saving the life of a lady visiting the seafront.
2022 has already seen us agree three more grants and we would like to reiterate once more, how grateful we are to all our supporters who have helped in this success.
We all look forward to continuing our work during the coming months.
