On Saturday 26th March 2022 some of the CDS team alongside many others completed a 10-mile coastal walk from Eastbourne Pavilion to Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion.
The walk was organised to raise money to support the British Red Cross who are providing vital aid and assistance for the Ukrainian people caught up in the conflict with Russia.
CDS and another local business sponsored the event to help organiser, Geoff Dixon, make sure the event ran smoothly.
The fundraising page has now closed with the event having raised £8,552.78 for the British Red Cross to aid Ukrainian refugees. Walk4Ukraine presented engraved tankards to the top three fundraisers which were awarded to Angela Rew (Upper Dicker), Fiona Robinson (Bexhill) & a special award to 9 year old Autumn Dyer (Bexhill) with the top fundraiser prize going to former Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd.
After Stephen Lloyd was presented with his tankard by CDS Director Derek Bulled he said “So many people locally stepped up to support the British Red Cross Walk4Ukraine event from Eastbourne to Bexhill, I was both amazed & touched by all those who personally supported me. The successful event, backed by CDS Electrical & Online Ticket Seller, raised over £8.5k with every penny donated going to a wonderful cause, SlavaUkraine!”
Walk4Ukraine would like to thank all those that took part, the course marshals, supporters & those who kindly donated. Although the Walk4Ukraine fundraising page is now closed any further donations can be made directly to the British Red Cross at Ukraine Crisis Appeal - JustGiving
