What is Sore Feet For The Beat?

‘Sore Feet For The Beat’ is a website dedicated to a charity walk taking place later this year.   Donations initially  helped raise money for ‘The Beat Goes On’, an appeal which was created to crowd fund a statue of Ipswich Town legend Kevin Beattie outside of the Portman Road ground.   Now the statue has been paid for, the walk is now raising monies for the Kevin Beattie Foundation.   The statue is planned to be unveiled in the near future.
