Check out where your donations went & what events and fundraisers we do.
Eastern Winter Ball
November usually sees Olympus Events host The Essex Winter Ball to raise awareness and funds for the charity in its house builder event. To kick this off, they had the amazing Ant Middleton as special guest and speaker along with raffles, music, dancing and dinner. It is a truly magical evening.
The event has seen us raise lots of much-needed funds thanks to the generosity of all who attended. We can’t thank you all enough.
October time, we host our Starlight Ball fundraiser to raise donations.
The event often takes place at Stock Brook Manor, Billericay. We had special guest Danny Dyer hosting the raffle, Talia Dean singing, dance acts, live bands and the amazing Trevor Cline entertaining us with his magic.
This was another successful fundraising event for the Foundation, and we were very grateful for everyone’s generosity.
3 Peaks Challenge
In July 2019 a group of 20 fundraisers set off at 3 am to travel from Essex to Scotland to begin climbing the 3 peaks within a 24 hour time period. Thankfully the weather was in their favour, and all returned safely having completed the challenge.
The event saw over £6,000 raised for the charity thanks to the kindness of all who donated.
March was supposed to be the date of the London Landmarks Half Marathon where we had 20 runners signed up and prepped ready to take on the 21km challenge. However, what happened next we all know far too well, and sadly the event like so many was cancelled due to Coronavirus.
Fortunately, a few runners were able to cover the distance in a safe capacity still and complete the challenge local to their amazing homes.
We are grateful to those that completed the challenge and to those who donated x
