Mersea – here we come!

The Rob George Foundation is delighted to launch Rob’s Big Walk 2023

Kindly organised and supported by our dear friends at Ellisons Solicitors, this hugely popular annual fundraising event will take place on Sunday 11th June.

Previous Rob’s Big Walks have covered the beautiful Essex Way, but this year we are excited to move the walk to Mersea Island, taking on the 14 mile round the island route (a shorter route will also be available).

As with all of Rob’s Big Walks this is an amazing opportunity for local businesses, groups of friends, families, individuals, and clubs to join together to support the RGF and have a lot of fun and comradery in the process.

Rob’s dad and Chairman of the Rob George Foundation, Pip George said: “Once again weare so grateful to the partners and staff at Ellisons Solicitors for offering their support and organisation for this very special event. This year is particularly exciting as we move to Mersea Island for a change of scenery and a different challenge.”

To take part, please email to confirm as soon as possible. Please state if you would like to enter as a team or an individual.

There will be a check-in at the start with directions for walkers and emergency supplies!The walk will begin at Mersea Barns, East Rd, East Mersea, Colchester CO5 8TQ. All walkers are encouraged to arrive by 9am.

Often, we are asked by our followers how best to raise money when supporting Rob’s Walk. The most popular method is by direct donations by the walkers (like a joining fee) backing themselves to participate on the walk, while also encouraging all their contacts, whoever and wherever they may be to sponsor them either by the mile or for completing the event. Clicking on the link below will take you to the main InvestMyCommunity site page for Rob’s Walk. You can then either donate via the ‘Donate’ icon, or you can set up your own fundraising page. Just click on the ’Fundraise for us’ icon and set up your own account and share it with all your contacts promoting your own fundraising campaign. Why not invite your contacts to do the same to broaden the reach of this amazing event and maximise the potential to raise funds for the RGF. This link also provides further information on the event, including starting point, timings, refreshments etc., and we would recommend you read this:

Please share this post with your friends and families and spread the word as we would like this to be the most successful Rob’s Big Walk ever.

Thank you!
