“Local Community Group raises over £600 in Charity Walk.” (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 Macmillan Nurses, and Bright Horizons Foundation For Children.
Barking & Dagenham Plus, a social group for young adults, staged a sponsored walk from Barking Station to the City Pavillion in Collier Row on Saturday 2nd September. The walk was six miles long and collectively they raised over £600 in doing so.
Club chairman Richard Leach explained:
“Every September we hold a charity fundraising event, in honour of one of our former members who died of Cancer. We’re very pleased – we’ve raised twice as much as we did this time last year. We’d like to express our deep gratitude to all our donors.
“We also put on other events throughout the year: we intend to be staging a Charity Darts Tournament in Chadwell Heath, later in 2016.”
Barking & Dagenham Plus meets every Tuesday from 9pm at the Tollgate 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
