“Local Community Group’s Memorial Walk For Cancer Charities.” (Press Release)
Members of a local community group commemorated the anniversary of one of their deceased friends at the weekend: with a sponsored walk to raise money for Cancer charities.
Barking & Dagenham Plus, a social group for young adults, staged a sponsored walk around Canvey Island in Essex on Saturday 12th September. The walk was nine miles long and collectively they raised over £300 in doing so.
Club chairman Richard Leach explained:
“Several years ago, one of our members, Adrian Pembroke, tragically died of cancer – so every September we hold a charity fundraising event in his honour. We also put on other events throughout the year: we intend to be staging a Charity Darts Tournament nearer to home in Chadwell Heath, later in 2015.”
Barking & Dagenham Plus meets every Tuesday from 9pm at the White Horse in Chadwell Heath, and is always interested in receiving new membership enquiries. For more information please phone Joe on 07958 669339, or visit http://www.barkingdagenhamplus.com
