Stagger To The Daggers - Tuesday 28th January 2014
Our Sponsored walk on Tuesday 28th January saw Trust Members Scott Barber, Clare Brooks, Tom Brooks, Shane Chapman, Rob Craven, Paul FitzGerald, Lesley Hicks, Darren Posnack, Alec Trott and guest star Chris Phillips walk from the centre spot at Roots Hall to the same at Dagenham and Redbridge's ground.
Apart from fairly poor weather for the last 5 miles and some seriously sore legs the day passed largely without incident.
The walkers were raising money for the Stroke Unit at Southend Hospital and Trust funds.
A presentation will be made to Paul Guyler, the Lead consultant at the Stroke Unit on the pitch at Roots Hall when all money is collected.
The walkers and all at the Trust would like to thank everyone who helped including Southend United staff, Altons Garden Centre, Puddledock Farm, Mecca Bingo Hornchurch and Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club and for everyone who donated money - it really is very much appreciated.

Through supporter membership and fund raising the Trust currently provides sponsorship to Southend United's youth department and has also helped raise money for specific items required by the club, including equipment for its physiotherapy department. We are always keen wherever appropriate to increase our investment by partnering other important causes within the club. We see Southend United Football Club as being an important part of our town.

We in addition see the Trust as having a role to play within the surrounding community which is why the walk between Southend and Dagenham & Redbridge will also benefit the Stroke Unit at Southend Hospital.
Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust cares for more than 380,000 patients each year. It's the local hospital for the Southend area and beyond, providing a wide range of acute services and specialist treatment.

Strokes are the largest single cause of severe disability and the third most common cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. They will have a major impact on the lives of individuals they affect. The Stroke Unit at Southend University Hospital via its excellent services and state of the art facilities has dramatically helped to reduce the level of disability in stroke patients and has become one of the top three stroke services in the country. Through the Trust's fund raising efforts we want to help maintain the Unit's excellent services – as after all you never know when ourselves or someone close to us might need these services.

We do hope that you will sponsor us for our walk. You can either make a donation in support of the whole team's efforts or alternatively sponsor a specific walker. The choice is yours-- we really don't mind!

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