Jenks & Cattell Engineering employees spent last week fundraising and donating food, toiletries, and clothes for Good Shepherd Services.
Good Shepherd Services operate in Wolverhampton, locally to us, helping the most disadvantaged, vulnerable, and marginalised people in the city, and offer support to people with addictions.
We started off the week fundraising with a sweepstake for Craig Jeavons, Technical Director favourite song – it was I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake. Next was our ‘Mince Pie Off’ competition, with thanks to our independent judges of Tracy Richards, Sarah Austin and Garry Evans having the luxury of taste testing. Eleanor Imray, Lisa Poxon and Zoe Collins (all the sales girls), made the podium. In addition, we hosted Christmas jumper day.
At the works Christmas party, we had a raffle with 15 winners, and we raised £80.
In total we raised £209, which the company have matched, and we are proud to announce we have donated £418 Good Shepherd Services in Wolverhampton, plus two large sacks full of food, deodorant, toothpaste, shower gel and men’s clothing.
We would like to thank every single person who donated money and items to this fantastic charity, with special thanks to Tracy Richards, Lisa Poxon and Rose Crawford-Waldron who donated lots of goods and Mark Denny who re-donated his sweepstake winnings. We would also like to thank everyone and suppliers who donated gifts for our raffle who include Craig Jeavons, Eleanor Imray, Jenks & Cattell Engineering, Greggs Phoenix Road Wednesfield, Red Lion pub Wednesfield, Wentworth James and Total Supplies Ltd.
