Amble To The Addicks - Sponsored Walk - In Aid Of The Shrimpers Trust And Little Havens Hospice - Cheque Presentation

Whilst the vast majority of Southend supporters traveling to the Away game vs Charlton Athletic used the more conventional methods of transport, 11 supporters joined by Southend United's Commercial Director, Danny Macklin walked the 35.7 miles from Roots Hall to The Valley in order to raise funds for the Shrimpers Trust and Little Havens Hospice.
After 13 hours of continuous walking with blistered feet and very tired legs, we are pleased to confirm that the 'Ambles' team arrived safely at their destination.
With sponsorship money received to date together with some pledges which are yet to be collected the Trust are delighted to confirm that the overall sum raised by 'Amble to the Addicks' should top the £10,000 mark. This is a fantastic result.
On Sunday 30th April prior to the game vs Bury FC members of the 'Ambles' team presented a cheque for £5,000 to Sally Bridger from the Little Havens Hospice.

The Shrimpers Trust would like to take the opportunity to extend a massive thank you to the walkers and support team who gave up their time and completed this physically challenging event.

Also thanks go to all the local business, fellow Supporter Groups, plus the Southend United supporter community as a whole for their encouragement and generous contributions.
