Jenx and Jiraffe raise over £5,000 for Charity of the Year 2018 – Newlife!
During 2018, employees from Jiraffe and Jenx Ltd. undertook a range of fundraising activities which raised a fantastic £5,000 for Newlife, the Charity for Disabled Children.
Following the appointment of Newlife as the Charity of the Year in January 2018, employees embraced the partnership with challenges such as the gruelling Yorkshire Warrior, running the Colour Dash during the summer heatwave and testing their kitchen skills in the Great Jenx Bake Off!
Along with fundraising, employees donated their time to volunteer for the charities unique de-tagging events, preparing items donated from high street stores to get them ‘shop ready’. The team were able to sort through over 80 crates of stock, saving the Newlife team both time and money assisting to generate further income within their 8 stores.
The total £5,075 raised will fund new products to assist with Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan service, offering free loan equipment which can help children at significant risk of injury, and those in urgent need, with an aim to deliver equipment within 72 hours.
