Our charities

Huw Johnson Club

The Huw Johnson Club is a Stansted-based social group for over 25 adults with learning disabilities. The Club has been supported for the past two years by the Stansted 10k Committee, and we have received over £5,000 of support in that time. For a small, local charity, such significant support has had a huge impact on the Club, and we are incredibly grateful not just to the Committee for choosing us, but to all the runners, sponsors and volunteers. The Huw Johnson Club is run entirely on voluntary funds and by volunteers, and we provide all activities for free, from bingo and craft evenings, to discos, pub trips and theatre trips. In the past year, funding from the Stansted Fun Run has enabled us to go ten-pin bowling, go to the Rhodes Arts Theatre to see Hairspray the Musical, have a sausage and mash supper at a local pub and pay for catering and entertainment for our Christmas Party, plus a number of other smaller activities. Having the support and available funds from the Fun Run allows us to arrange for new and exciting activities for our members to take part in, and also gives us financial security to allow us to plan for the future.

St Clare Hospice

St Clare Hospice is a charity providing specialist palliative care to improve the lives of people living with a terminal or life-limiting illness in West Essex and East Hertfordshire, including Bishop’s Stortford and Sawbridgeworth. Our approach to care gives patients, their families and carers, the confidence to cope so that, together, they can enjoy the best possible quality of life, whether at home or in the Hospice. With limited NHS funding, we need to raise most of the £5.2 million it costs each year to provide our vital services. We therefore rely on our local community to help us raise money each year so we can continue being there for local families facing one of the most difficult journeys in life.

Grove Cottage

We aim to improve the lives of local people with learning disabilities, by reducing social isolation, increasing happiness and self-confidence and to offer respite and support to families. Driven by the needs of local people with learning disability we are passionate about improving lives.

Through the provision of a variety of clubs and services, and a safe, stimulating fun environment, we help around 150 individuals and their families each year, encourage lifelong friendships, improve happiness, self-confidence and wellbeing and support local people with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full.

The future looks very exciting for Grove Cottage. We have listened to our members, their families, staff, volunteers and supporters and we have plans to grow and deliver more of our current services, plus new ones.

Grove Cottage has been chosen again to be one of the three charities to benefit from the 2019 event.

About us

The Stansted 10k Fun Run and Walk covers 10 km (approx. 6 miles) over country and road. The event is highly organised with a measured route and kilometre markers.

There are at least 3 water stations and the Red Cross will be on hand. There will be marshals positioned along the route with mobile phones, as well as a ‘last man’ marshal bringing up the rear.

All 10k runners are chipped so will receive an accurate time report when they cross the line. Results are available on the day and will be published on the website afterwards.

The first Stansted Fun Run and walk was held in 1986 as a part of the International Sport Aid event – The Race Against Time, organised by Bob Geldorf and others. Stansted contributed its own part with what became the first Stansted 10k Fun Run and Walk at the suggestion of Jim Collins, still very much involved today. The event became an annual fixture in the Stansted Mountfitchet diary, later becoming bi-annual. In response to popular demand, the event has returned to its yearly occurrence and has grown into a true community event.
