As part of our commitment to supporting our communities JDR Cable Systems Ltd organise events year on year, to raise money in support of our respective local charities and causes
During the past 7 years JDR Cable Systems Ltd. have now raised over £124,000 for our local charity fundraising efforts, which just keeps getting better and better. A massive thank you to everyone whom have supported us to date.
Due to Covid-19 the JDR Annual Charity Summer Ball has been postponed until Friday 11th June 2021. Also, the Charity Karting event has now been postponed until further notice, new date to be set as soon as safe to do so.
We are excited to announce that our chosen charities to benefit from the 2020/21 Charity Karting and Charity Summer Ball will be Mesothelioma UK along with local support group Readley.
More information about the charity can be found at http://www.Readley.co.uk and https://www.mesothelioma.uk.com/
Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer primarily caused by exposure to asbestos and affects approximately 2,700 people in the UK each year. There is no cure for mesothelioma and there are very limited options for treatment. Mesothelioma receives very little funding compared to other cancers. During a presentation delivered by representatives from the charity the devastating symptoms and effects that the disease has on the patients and the resultant effect on their families was explained to the JDR charity fundraising team.
We are sure you will join us in looking forward this year to fundraising that will support local specialist nursing units, and help local support groups that give the patients and their families a lifeline, through counselling and guidance. Readley are able to provide a professional holistic approach, which encompasses all areas of help for patients and their families, such as emotional, physical, social and financial care. Thank you for your support.
JDR's 7th Annual Charity Summer Ball 2019 was held from 17:00 to 01:00 on Friday 26th July 2019 at Hardwick Hall Hotel, fundraising for Mesothelioma UK and Readley. The theme of the 2019 event, courtesy of none other than F1's own Rob and Lucy Smedley, was the world famous 'Grand Prix Dinner'.
"The power of teamwork. 2019 was our best year ever. We raised an astonishing £20,000 for Mesothelioma UK and Readley!"
