The Essex Beach Hut Appeal


The Beach Hut Appeal received a big boost and a welcome addition to their funds – when being presented with a magnificent sum of £1,000 from the newly formed ‘Heart of Darts’.   

The presentation of the cheque was made at the recent Essex County Game where Pat Williams, a member of  the ‘The Beach Hut Appeal’ Committee, received the cheque on behalf of the association from Andy Fordham.   The cheque will enable the restoration of a Beach Hut at Thorpe Bay to be completed and ‘up and running’ early in the year – its use being for people with special needs and disabilities to be able to enjoy a ‘day at the beach’.   ‘Heart of Darts’ is spearheaded by  Andy Fordham, Trina Gulliver and well-known Ian Waller who, all being charity orientated, have set up this new venture for the sole purpose of raising money to help smaller unfunded charities, who have to rely solely on donations, to achieve their ‘goals’.   The Beach Hut Appeal was chosen to receive their very first donation as it was felt that it could benefit people from all walks of life and was not restricted to any one charity or organisation – exactly what was intended.   I join with many others in wishing Heart of Darts every success in their worthy cause.
