Free Radio Walk in the Black Country – Sunday 10th June 2012

Over 4,600 people arrived at Himley Park – Wolverhampton last Sunday in wonderful sunshine intent on not only having a fun time, but also attempting to raise as much money as possible for Promise Dreams.  Last year, a fantastic £103,000 was raised by the 3,500 competitors. Would it be possible to improve on that figure…………………

Fresh and Emma hosted the event (Emma looking gorgeous as Minnie Mouse) and I joined my fellow patrons from Promise Dreams, namely Steve Bull, Beverley Knight, Jacqui Graham, and Matt Murray on stage for a pre walk warm up carried out by the girls from Wolverhampton Uni.   We were delighted to have the lovely Nick Hancock join us on stage.

You can see the vid here to get an idea of how everybody enjoyed themselves and when Free Radio announced on air early on Monday morning that the money raised on the day was an unbelievable £117,000 I can only imagine just how happy all of those people would be to know that they had been part of something so wonderful.

£117,000 will make so many dreams come true for the youngsters that Promise Dreams work with. There will be so many happy, smiley children because of the wonderful people that gave up their Sunday to raise money and on behalf of the Promise Dreams team and their Patrons Beverley, Jacqui, Steve, Don, Matt, I would just like to say a very big thank you to all of you who took part and of course to Matt and the team at Free Radio who made it all possible.
