The Finish Line Fund would like to thank all of the organisers of the Leigh-on-Sea Strider’s Halloween themed 10k on the evening of Wednesday, 1st November. To all of the wonderful marshals from Leigh-on-Sea Striders, all of the runners who made the night so special, and the event sponsors, RunActive Essex and happystride, thank you so much!
In total, the event raised £5,000 and Finish Line Fund is absolutely amazed at the extremely generous donation, which will allow us to continue our work supporting sport and making those places where sport takes place safer.
This year we have issued 32 grants to clubs and event organisers for various equipment, training courses, sponsorship and increased our defibrillator estate now to 28.
To everyone who took part or supported the event, many thanks.
This year we are close to our target of providing 30 grants. These total c£15,000 and have benefited a range of sports clubs, event organisers and public places with a high degree of sporting activity. We have now placed 27 defibrillators into the community, all in East Essex. 🧡
