The Fun Walk is an annual fundraising event organised by BBW CVS on behalf of The Fun Walk Trust, and this year’s event is being dedicated to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Participants will be able to complete their 5k sponsored walk anywhere and anytime during June, allowing them to raise money for their chosen charity or local community group.
John Baron MP, Chair of The Fun Walk Trustees, said:
“When we started the Fun Walk in 2002 it was to commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. We had no idea that it would grow to support hundreds of charities and raise over £1.3m to date. This year the Queen will become the first British Monarch to mark 70 years of service to the people of the UK. To celebrate, this year’s event will be known as ‘The Platinum Jubilee Fun Walk’.
The BONUS POT is a unique feature of the event, with funds donated by local businesses and individuals and then distributed to participating organisations on a pro rata basis in addition to the monies they themselves raise in sponsorship. In 2021, it added 30% to the amount raised by participants.
