Calling Local Businesses, Groups and Clubs………

Are you up for a challenge? Well it’s this simple – Essex Chambers of Commerce will give you £50 and between 1st April 2020 and 30th September 2020 you try to convert this into as much money as you can manage.

We make the initial investment and then it’s over to you to let your imaginations run wild, and your FUNdraising events can go even wilder!


You have a period of 6 months commencing 1st April’20 and finishing at the end of September’20. Sometime soon after this date Denise Rossiter, CEO of Essex Chamber of Commerce, and Lorraine George (Trustee of the RGF) will walk the length and breadth of Essex, to each participating business, to collect the funds you’ve so generously raised.


The Rob George Foundation exists in memory of Rob, who died aged 21 in 2013, after a battle bravely fought against Leukaemia.

The Foundation’s aims are:-

  1. To provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or
    terminal illnesses.
  2. To provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment
    and/or ability in the worlds of sport or performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.
