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

Saturday 5th October 2019

On Saturday 5th October nine Shrimpers Trust members together with Southend United's Head of Commercial Rhys Ellingham walked the 33.4 miles to the Blues away game with Gillingham, to raise funds for the Trust and local children's charity Little Havens Hospice.

We are delighted to confirm that 'Journey to the Gills' has raised a massive £8,089.35.

The Trust are extremely grateful for the tremendous backing that this initiative has received from local businesses, Southend United Football Club including directors and players and importantly the Blues supporter community as a whole, with everyone thanked for their encouragement and generousity.

 
 
 
At the recent home game vs Rotherham, Little Havens Manager Carmel Hudson was presented by the Trust with a cheque for £4,050.

Shrimpers Trust Chairman Paul FitzGerald who himself made the trek added 'It,s great that we have been able to make a difference here by raising funds for Little Havens Hospice. In addition, the Trust is always keen to support other important causes in and around the Football Club and monies raised by the walk will help us to continue to do this'.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Anyone still wishing to make a donation to the cause can do so by visiting the team's JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/journeytothegills where all monies raised will go direct to Little Havens.
 
Pictures taken from the launch to the finish of the walk can be found on our Facebook page here.
