Walking the talk – we support the Mind Firewalk!

We are pleased to confirm that The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group are the key sponsors of this year’s Mid and North East Essex Mind FireWalk, to be held at Writtle University College on World Mental Health Day, Tuesday 10th October 2023.

Mental health and wellbeing is a topic close to our hearts, so we were very pleased to get involved. However, while we’re happy to provide sponsorship, we found we couldn’t do it just in principle; we couldn’t resist getting more thoroughly involved, so a courageous eight of our team members signed up at once to do the actual Firewalk!

At 6pm on 10th October 2023 two teams of intrepid Hunnaball heroes will be, quite literally, stepping out of their comfort zones onto hot coals, to complete the Firewalk in aid of Mid and North East Essex Mind. They would love your help to raise funds for this extremely important cause.

You can make donations on our JustGiving page here.

The event is open to spectators, so if you would like to come and cheer them on, Chris, Zena, Sarah, Tom, Iain, Amber, Cara and Mark would love your support on the day – or in this case, the evening!

Unlike other sponsored walks, the course is just twenty feet, but it will be across far more challenging terrain that most marathon runners will ever see! We’re so proud of our team for volunteering. We’re told that this can be a life-changing experience, and we certainly hope to make an impact for this great charity. Please join us in making this a success.
