Hawkwell junior parkrun Defibrillator

This morning we were at Hawkwell junior parkrun. Last year we stepped up to fund the purchase of a defibrillator when the Event Director deemed the one at Clements Hall was too far from the course. 69 junior park runners completed the course on a lovely morning.

Hawkwell Junior parkrun commented:

A huge thank you for your donation! We cannot run our event without direct access to an AED and due to our post COVID relocation to the pavilion, the one at Clements Hall was just a little too far away and posed too much of a risk.

Your kind donation not only means we can run our event each week as we have the right safety equipment in place, but it means we have our own AED on site should anything ever happen.

The safety of our volunteers, runners and their families is always our utmost priority so this was such an important step towards our safe return last year and we cannot thank the finish fund line enough.

It’s not too late to join in!

Don’t forget to sign up for our Finish Line Frolic on July 31st, our 6 hour running event co-hosted by our friends at Hare and Tortoise Running.

Choose to run as many, or as few, traffic-free looped 5k trail loops within the 6 hour time limit. There will be fully manned aid stations so you can grab yourself a free snack or you can leave your bag safely and eat your own.

Thanks again for your continued support, the Trustees x

Thank you!

Many, many thanks to runners from Flyers Southend who during this week bought their donations from their monthly 5k handicap to over £1000 since they returned to the Chalkwell tarmac last September following Covid restrictions.

We are so very grateful for your continued support.

This money alone has effectively covered the bulk of the cost of two portable defibrillators that we have recently put into the community.

Many thanks x
