John Baron MP: 2016 Fun Walk Bonus Pot starts well

February 22, 2016

MP thanks sponsors and says more still to decide their contribution

John Baron MP today announced the Fun Walk Bonus Pot has already exceeded £22,000 and will rise further as a number of sponsors have yet to decide how much they will contribute. Each year, the bonus pot pays a bonus to the participating charities/projects over and above what they raise themselves in sponsorship.

In 2015, for every £100 raised in sponsorship by the various projects themselves, the bonus pot added a further £90. The Walk is set for 22nd May, again at Barleylands Farm – a factsheet is attached.

John said:

“The generosity of our Bonus Pot sponsors is appreciated by everyone. In addition to Barleylands Farm for hosting the Walk, our thanks go to this year’s sponsors so far – c2c Rail Ltd, Butyl Products Ltd, Hallmark Care Homes, Private Ambulance Service Ltd, Abellio Greater Anglia and IFE Global Logistics. It has started well, with a number of other sponsors still to decide how much they will contribute.”
