Everyone Active Raiders have announced they will be running a charity walk to support their selected charity St Francis Hospice for the 2018/19 season.

The Romford-based club will be wearing sunflower colour warm-up jerseys in aid of the charity this campaign and the sponsorship has already sold out.

They also felt like they wanted to raise more for the charity and decided upon a pre-season funding walk, which will start at the Sapphire Ice and Leisure Centre and finish at the hospice in Havering Atte-Bower on Sunday, August, 5.

The chosen route is 10 miles and like most sponsored walks the idea will be to get friends and family, colleagues, clients and customers to sponsor you for each mile walked.

The club statement said: “So do we have a target? Well if we could get 100 of the G&B faithful along to this and each of you could prise £50 out of your wider facebook circle then this would raise £5,000 for a very deserving cause.

“As an incentive we would offer a season ticket to the person that raised the highest sum.

“The day will be a great chance to meet up pre-season with your hockey buddies and agree on some of the new song lyrics, perhaps catch up with some players, and all of this whilst working for a very worthy cause and shatter our previous fund raising totals.”

More details to come in the future on the walk.
