Joey Essex joins hundreds to do charity onesie walk
3:00pm Tuesday 1st April 2014 in Local news
JOEY Essex was joined by more than 300 onesie-clad fundraisers for a special charity walking event in Brentwood on Mother’s Day.
The 23-year-old TOWIE star led the Onesie Walk at King George Playing Fields just off Ingrave Road which was in aid of Child Bereavement UK.
At the age of ten, Joey’s mother died and the reality TV star said he was pleased to see so many people turn out for the event which saw walkers put on onesies and then go round a 3km course.
Afterwards, Joey said: “Mother’s Day can be tough when you haven’t got a Mum.
“That’s why I’m really proud to be here supporting Child Bereavement UK and raising awareness of the charity on Mother’s Day.”
