Three Shells Beach
This summer, Southend Foodbank is encouraging people to get outside and take on the Southend Foodbank 5k Challenge.
Southend Foodbank is organising family walks along the seafront to kickstart an active summer, on 22nd and 29th July. There is a shorter 1km walk or an option to go further to 3km or the full 5km. Everyone starts and finishes at Three Shells Beach. There is also an optional activity trail sheet to complete along the walk.
Later in the summer there is a challenge to complete a 5k your way during August, with challenges for how far, how slowly and how local you can make your 5km walk.
We are aiming to make the walks community-focussed and accessible, on routes that have reasonable access for wheelchair and mobility aid users as well as different fitness levels. Although the walks are part of our fundraising activities, there is no minimum sponsorship required and people who use the Foodbank or volunteer can take part without doing any fundraising. Donations are also welcome. We want to bring people together and get active, and if we can raise some funds too that’s even better.
