We have been inspired by the loss of many friends and loved ones, we are again doing an “Endurance Walk".This year we will start in London and finish in Henley on Thames and this year we will be joined by a few of our friends for the Whole Walk / Day Stages or a few miles.
The Team so far is:
Dave (Camp / Freddie) Broughton
Max (Dusty) Boone
As before we will be raising money for the Colchester Cancer Unit.
Last year we managed to raise a little over £6k, with another £1k from other events like the Boxing Day Barrel Hunt and Alma vs Copford Cricket match. The Cancer Unit still has £250k to raise to complete the building work so our efforts and any funds raised will be greatly appreciated.

Below is some information about the Cancer Unit. A few our our friends and neighbours have made use of their current facilities, and very sadly some did not recover. We have all had a friend or loved one blighted with this horrible disease. So please give what you can and do come and join us (no matter how long or short) if you can.
The Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity raises money to improve facilities, fund new equipment, provide additional services, support staff development and initiate local medical research and innovative projects at The East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust.We always ensure that your kind gifts and donations benefit the area of the hospital or community service that you choose. Every donation is greatly appreciated and makes a real and positive difference to the experience of being in hospital.
