£1 million funding set to Inspire Activity across Essex

Organisations and groups across Essex are already doing fantastic work to help more people have greater access to sport and physical activities, and we can’t wait to see the impact our partnership with Active Essex and The Active Essex Foundation will have over the next year.

Executive Director at The London Marathon Charitable Trust

Cllr Lee Scott, Essex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways Maintenance and Sustainable Transport, said: “We are delighted that through our partnership with RideLondon, Essex County Council has been able to unlock more funding to support cycling, sport and physical activity across the county. This funding from The London Marathon Charitable Trust will lead to healthier communities and supports our Safer, Greener, Healthier Active Travel plans to make walking and cycling more accessible to Essex residents.”

Active Essex and The Active Essex Foundation will be managing the administration and delivery of The Trust’s funding in Essex over the next year. Look out for more details on their website (activeessex.org) and socials in the coming weeks.
