FJG staff brave the cold for good causes
9 December 2014 by Marketing Team
Over the past couple of days FJG staff have been taking a break from their usual activities in order to raise money for local community charities.
On Friday, 5 members of staff from our Charter Court office ditched the formalities of office attire for some very fetching Santa Costumes. However this wasn’t just for the kicks, in fact the EACH Colchester Business Park Santa Run has been running three years now. This year our runners were Marion Knocker, Gayle Fordham, Ties Bouwmeester, Rob Phillips and Tom Fisher. A fantastic team effort saw Marion and Gayle finishing amongst the highest placed females and we are delighted to reveal that we have raised over £500 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). This is an amazing charity which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk which also provides bereavement support.

Elsewhere this weekend, as well as holding our hugely successful Christmas Party, members from the Billericay Office also attended the Billericay Market. Armed with mince pies and mulled wine, our stall, just in front of our offices on the High Street was again a popular stop off on a chilly Sunday. Again the day was a great success as the streets of Billericay were bustling and the collective efforts of Kevin Booroff, Andrew Brown, Barbara Matthews, Donna Duca, Jan Fudge, Jan Silver, Kathy Daley, Sally Dowsett and Gill Scott managed to raise a brilliant £198. The list of local community groups and charities that are to benefit can be found here.
