2024 Fun Walk Bonus pot gets boost from Brown & Carroll Ltd


At a visit to long-term Fun Walk Trust sponsor Brown and Carroll’s office in Basildon last week, the Fun Walk Trustees John Baron MP, Sylvia Kent, Christine Brewster and Sandra Bastow were able to share the great news that pledges from local businesses to the 2024 Bonus pot have now exceeded £30,000 and to thank Brown & Carroll for their donation this year and in preceding years.

John Baron said

“On behalf of the trustees and team, I would like to convey a personal thank you to Brown and Carroll, and to all the other sponsors that have pledged a donation to the 2024 Fun Walk Bonus Pot. They include Greater Anglia, Butyl Products Group, Tunnelcraft, IFE Global Logistics, Swan Housing Group, RIS Group, Mr Barrie Stone and others. The Bonus pot now exceeds £30,000 and this will be distributed on a pro rata basis to all this year’s participating organisations.”

“We continue to encourage good causes to register for the September Fun Walk, please come and join us to raise money for your community projects. For more information, please visit the Fun Walk website:

In welcoming the Fun Walk Trustees, Steve Brown, co-founder and Director at Brown and Carroll, said:

“We have been supporting the Fun Walk since 2018 as this is a great way of providing important funding to many local good causes. It also aligns really well with our Social Impact objectives. We wish all participants well and look forward to hearing of the total monies raised.”

This year the sponsored walks can happen anytime during September and at any location chosen by the registered charity or local community group. With the generous support of local businesses, the Trust tops up the sponsorship money raised by each group on a pro-rata basis, which last year equated to a 40% bonus over and above the amount each organisation raised themselves.

In today’s fast-paced world, effective communication is the cornerstone of building strong connections and achieving collective goals. This is particularly crucial when it comes to bridging the gap between statutory bodies and community organisations. The BBW CVS Mighty Network, is a new powerful online platform designed to facilitate meaningful connections and collaborations and we want you to be a part of it!

Our Mighty Network provides the framework to bring people together, foster collaboration, and facilitate meaningful interactions within a dedicated online environment, at a time that suits you!

Join us today (it’s free!) and see what a difference the world can be when we are all MIGHTY together!

Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS 

Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) was formed in 1979 as an independent registered charity that exists to promote, develop, support and represent a thriving, effective, voluntary and community sector in the borough.

Our work and mission

We are guided by values that promote equality of opportunity, participation, cooperation, partnership and democratic involvement. We promote local voluntary and community action in order to combat poverty and disadvantage, and to improve the quality of life for all of Basildon’s communities and citizens.

We do this by providing a range of services to meet the needs of voluntary and community organisations, helping those that are starting up as well as organisations that are already established. We also support joint working between voluntary and community organisations, with business, and the statutory sector, and help to make sure the interests and concerns of the VCS are well represented.

You can find out more about the impact of our work in our annual reports.

Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS is registered charity (1148943) and a company limited by guarantee (8028602). We are governed by trustees who are nominated and elected by our members.

We are a member of NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action) and EACVS (Essex Association of Voluntary Services) as we believe it is important to share information, disseminate good practice and influence decision-making that affects our sector.

In summary we aim to make a real difference to the people and communities of Basildon. If you share this vision and want to help us on this journey you can join our growing membership.
