For the year 2021 we have decided to fund raise on behalf of Refuge against Domestic Violence. 2020 saw a rise in the demand for Refuge services and we wanted to support their efforts.
We kicked off our fundraising efforts for Refuge with Boxing Day runs and raised £677.
In December 2020 SE Fitness Walking Groups decided to support #TheBigWalk on behalf of Shelter they raised £755. Brilliant!
For the year 2020 we have decided to support St Basil’s. St Basils works with young people to enable them to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness. We raised over £1300 for St Basils in 2020.
Our first fundraising event on behalf of St Basils was our ‘Walk to Pub’ 11 Dec 2018. SE Walkers raised £69. Thank you!
Over Christmas we held a charity walk on Christmas Eve and a charity run on Boxing Day. These two events raised £94.50 and £142.
