During the week of 24th-28th June, Pheebi’s school, Milldown Academy, organised a sponsored sport week supporting three charities, including PORT. Pheebi suffers from chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and her lovely mum Kelly put PORT’s name forward for this event.  £172.50 was raised for our charity. Here’s to TEAMPORT!

The Moonlight Colourthon and Twillight Colourthon took place on Saturday 6th July 2019 at Chalkwell Park, Southend-on-Sea SSO 8NB.

The Moonlight Colourthon is a half marathon (13+ mile course),  FUN walk,  where entrants wear brightly coloured clothing, and walk against the backdrop of Southend by night. The Twillight Colourthon is a shorter, 10km (6.1 mile), walk where much of the route is the same as the longer Moonlight Colourthon.  Both events started at 6pm and were restricted to walkers over 13 years of age.

In addition to the obvious fun of dressing up the event highlights, to the public, the many worthy causes represented by the walkers. This year, PORT was represented by a great team 21 walkers, who  together raised £6273.75.

The shorter Twilight Colourthon was launched in 2012 for those who feel the Moonlight is a step too far. It is a walk through Southend, Westcliff and Chalkwell, over a shorter course than the Moonlight Colourthon, at 10k (6.1 miles).
