Fundraise-for-us-790x300

Would you like to get fit and do a walk that’ll make a big difference to a small charity? Well you can! The Colourthon, a walk around Southend, Westcliff and Chalkwell takes place on Saturday 1st July 2017, setting off at 6pm from Chalkwell Park. You have the option of the main event, the Moonlight Colourthon, a half marathon (13+ miles), or the shorter Twilight Colourthon, a 10k (6.1 mile) course, taking many of the same sights as the Moonlight but over a shorter distance.

P.O.R.T. gather walkers every year for the Colourthon, so you’ll be part of the #TEAMPORT and we will provide a P.O.R.T. embroidered sash and blue tutu skirt for the event – but better still, gather a group of your friends and have a great time out whilst raising money for P.O.R.T. in the process! You will need to raise sponsorship, and there are bonuses for the person with the most money raised, and the best dressed.

PORT Impact Report Image

P.O.R.T. Trustee Lucy put together an Impact Report for our 10th Anniversary, looking back on the first ten years of P.O.R.T’s work. We are exceptionally¬†proud of our charity and how it has progressed over the ten years, with our research and equipment funding total reaching ¬£320,234 – and with an exciting potential research project, and another potential piece of work for P.O.R.T. to fund both in the proposal stages.

You can read our 10th Anniversary Impact report here.

There is a shortened version which is available here.
