The Business Adventure Challenge

Southend

Sunday 1st March 2020
10:00am - 2:00pm
 

Calling All Essex Based Businesses - Do you fancy an Adventure?

Then get a team together, get sponsored and join us on Sunday 1st March for our Business Adventure Challenge in Southend. 

What does the Adventure involve?
We will meet at 10.00am outside The Crooked Billet, 51 High Street, Leigh-on-Sea, SS9 2EP. 
There is adequate paid parking at Belton Bridge car park at old Leigh and on the side streets nearby.
At 10.30am we will take a 3 mile walk to Adventure Island.

At Adventure Island you will be issued with wristbands so you can experience as many rides as possible in 1 hour.

We will then walk the longest pier in the world, at a whopping 1.3 miles, before heading to Clarence Yard Restaurant for some well deserved Fish & Chips.

Walking 6 miles in total.

Sponsorship
To take part in our Business Adventure Challenge you need to gather a team and raise as much sponsorship as you can.

Each individual can be sponsored for either -

  • Miles walked
  • Rides completed at Adventure Island 
  • The whole event

What's in it for you?
Essex Chambers will be filming the day and we will promote every business that takes part through our social media platforms.

Articles will appear in our Business Time and Grapevine publications plus additional press coverage. 

Where will the money raised go?
Our Charity of the Year is The Rob George Foundation which exists in memory of Rob, who died aged 21 in 2013, after a battle bravely fought against Leukaemia.

We want to assure you that none of the RGF’s trustees receive remuneration or any other financial benefit from their work with the Foundation and we would expect anyone raising funds for the RGF to adopt the same principle.
