Thank you Leigh-on-Sea Striders!

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.

A massive thank you 💙🧡

Fun at the Finish Line Frolic

Sunday, 31st July saw a fantastic day at the Finish Line Frolic raising money for the Finish Line Fund.

We can’t thank Hare & Tortoise Running Limited enough, we are so grateful for your fantastic support.

We are lucky also have had the support as sponsors of Southbourne Physiotherapy LTD and Myracekit for the two years the event now has run now. Thank you!

Belchamps Scout Activity Centre have also provided a great HQ for us and we are blessed with many helpers to make things happen.

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. 🧡
