Southend United Shrimpers Trust: in partnership with Little Havens Hospice

Saturday 8th April 2017: Sponsored walk from Southend United’s ground at Roots Hall Southend, to The Valley, London SE7 home of League 1 local rivals Charlton Athletic.
Through supporter membership and fund raising the Trust provides sponsorship to Southend United’s Youth department and will also donate money for specific items required by the Club. We are always keen to wherever appropriate increase our investment in the Club by partnering important causes. We see Southend United Football Club as being an important part of the town and surrounding area.  

We want to play an important role within the local community and as part of this commitment on Saturday 8th April 2017 eight Trust members/supporters together with Southend United’s Commercial Director, Danny Macklin will be walking the 35.7 miles to the away game between Southend United and Charlton Athletic, to raise funds for the Trust and Little Havens Hospice. We will be setting off from Roots Hall Football Stadium at the ridiculous hour of 12.01am. 

Essex based Little Havens Hospice, provides such valuable care to children and young people aged from birth to 19 years old who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. Through its support groups it also provides essential services to parents and siblings to help them through such difficult times.  Residential and community services extend across the county of Essex, including respite and end-of-life care.

Through the Trust’s fund raising efforts we want to contribute to the Hospice’s work in enabling them to continue to provide the highest quality palliative care services to those impacted in our local community.

We do hope that you will sponsor us for our walk.  

Our team is made up as follows:

• Josh Butcher
• Dave Edwards
• Shane Eggenton
• Jon-Paul FitzGerald
• Paul FitzGerald
• Tom Gosling
• Lesley Hicks
• Danny Macklin
• Bryan Woodford

Any sponsorship pledge you can make no matter how small will be very welcome and in anticipation thank you so much for your support.

Monies raised will be split 50/50 between the Trust and Little Havens Hospice. 

Cheques should be made payable to the Shrimpers Trust (or Little Havens Hospice if you prefer) and sent to Amble to the Addicks, The Shrimpers Trust, PO Box 5830, Southend-on-Sea, Essex SS1 9FD.
