We are often looking for ways to help out charities in any way we can. Have a look below for a couple of examples.
Some of the JCS team decided to take part in the Monti Carlo or Bust Banger Rally. This was a race to Monte Carlo in a banger with challenges along the way!
The challenge was to spend £500 on a car and absolutely no more and then drive the car to Monte Carlo.
Taking part in the challenge was Paul Sterry, our estimating Director and his wife Angela. Also, our Technical Director, John Dickens, and Director, Dave Allen.
Our team set off from Bacup in Lancashire full of enthusiasm and a little bit nervous but determined to raise as much money as possible for an Alzheimer’s charity.
Throughout the 2500 miles to Monte Carlo the team had to complete a different challenge each day. One day the team had to submit a picture of one of them on a space hopper. Another memorable challenge was finding a wedding dress to take a photo of one of them in. All the challenges submitted contributed to a total points tally.
The team raised over £3500 and made it to Monte Carlo in one piece!
DIY SOS, the popular BBC home renovation show made a Children In Need special. JCS Interiors were so proud to be a part of this.
We chose to take part in this because the project being renovated was local to us in Blackburn and was a fantastic local charity. Nightsafe offers temporary, emergency accommodation to young people who would be otherwise sleeping rough. It was incredibly full, however and needed more space.
The DIY SOS team were on the case to renovate a nearby parish room.
Along with hundreds of other volunteers, he helped to transform the parish room into additional accommodation for Blackburn’s most vulnerable youths. We provided our expert plastering and drylining services.
Estimating Director, Paul Sterry, said:
‘It was something we had always wanted to do and when we heard they needed local companies we headed straight down to help and stayed until it was finished.’
