Plus Charity Walk 2009 (Press Release)

September 26, 2009

Last Saturday members of Thurrock Plus and Barking & Dagenham Plus went on a sponsored walk to raise money for Richard House, a children’s hospice in Beckton. Richard House provides care and support for life-limited children and children with complex healthcare conditions and their families.

Nine members of PLUS took part in the walk, which started from Barking Station, and ended up at The City Pavillion in Collier Row – a distance of six miles. Barking & Dagenham member Richard Leach reported: “Between us we have raised over £500 through sponsorships. We have even had spontaneous donations from members of the public who were impressed with our charitable efforts.”

Thurrock Plus meets at The Ship, Dock Road, Grays from 9pm onwards: we always welcome new membership enquiries. For more information please contact Joe on 07958 669339.
