Supporting the Innocent Families

Hainault Forest Fundraising walk- Chigwell Tours

Hainault Forest was the location for the 3rd Chigwell Tours annual fundraising 10km walk for good causes.

The walk was organised to raise awareness of the devastating impact on parents, siblings and the community in East London, who have lost innocent sons to knife crime.  Many families struggle to gain normalcy after such crime.

Chigwell Tours, a local tour operator, raised £300 from the walk and the funds will support the charity, who then works to support the families affected.

The Flavasum Trust, East London charity and Another Night of Sisterhood- were nominated to receive the funds from the walk because of their work. Flavasum Trust supports families in Ilford, Barking and Dagenham, and provides counselling support through their monthly forum for affected parents.

Another Night of Sisterhood, from south London, have over the years stood alongside affected mothers and siblings,  and provide practical assistance for the immediate aftermath.

Speaking after the walk, Salome Ahenkora, Managing director of Chigwell tours, commented that “this type of crime gets much media coverage but, little is known about the innocent mothers and siblings whose lives are impacted for many years and they receive little or no coverage.  This was our motivation for the walk. We wanted to contribute to any support which the charity provides. We believe this was a timely and important cause to support.”

In 2016, Chigwell tours provided local families with disabled children in Epping Forest District and Barnardos Children Home in Redbridge, a day out to Southend on Sea from the funds raised from its Hainault Forest sponsored walk.   In 2017, Chigwell Tours worked with the Rotary Club of Chigwell, Buckhurst Hill and Loughton to raise funds to support Lend with Care, an international charity who provide loans for women in developing countries to start income generating activities which are then used to support their families.

Hainault Forest 10km Fundraising Sponsored Walk - Sunday 5th August.   Sart at 12 noon; Meeting Point: The Café in Hainault Forest

We are standing in support of the innocent families and siblings whose lives have been devastated by untimely death of a loved one in the prime of life due to gun and knife crime.

Background

The rise in gun and knife crime this year has truly shocked the nation, causing calls for greater protection for all.  As old and new initiatives continue to be tried, deaths of black boys rise.

Many of us stand on the outside and can’t begin to comprehend what it is like to be an innocent family who have become victims.

These families are now looking at the shattered broken prism of dreams and what could have been.

Whichever side of the fence you stand, we are here to support those living the devastation.

Our 10km walk, is in support of siblings and families who have lost loved ones, mostly black boys, to gun and knife crime   .

Our focus is the families in East London and mothers in South London.

We are working in partnership with The Flavasum Trust and Another Night of Sisterhood. They will receive the funds raised from our walk.
