Quiz nights and open mic nights along with Carols for Charity were among the events held by JCF North Devon in the last few months and JCF Mexico have been very busy with their events including their second Cookies and Carols event. JCF Australia is hoping to make another visit to the New Hope Orphanage in Beijing sometime in the future to take out further supplies for the children. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for any updates regarding this. Behind the scenes several of our volunteers have taken part in non-fundraising events to help charities, good causes and NFP organisations whenever they can for which we’re very grateful for and hope those who have been aided are too.
All at JCF North Devon were delighted that Jaden was able make it back from Mexico to the UK to take part in Songs from Stage and Screen with Taya Lambden and Meg Scoins at Escape Down the Rabbit Hole. A profit of £201.00 was made which will go to the North Devon teams designated charities for the coming year which are Care for Kids and Dogs Helping Kids.
Well done to JCF Mexico in Peurto Morelos and many thanks to all who took part at the very first Sangria competition for making this event a success!! Profits from this event benefitted school toys for Escueala Primaria David Alfaro Siqueiros, an air fare to relocate a rescued street dog and to provide internet access to a local dog rescue charity.
In the first 3 months of 2018 we held events including JCF Mexico’s first “Evening with Jaden Cornelious” at Lola y Moya and a “Back to School Disco” and the JCF North Devon teamed up with a new venue in Barnstaple – “Escape Down the Rabbit Hole” and held their first open mic night and charity quiz night – both were a great success and grateful thanks to the venues who have enabled us to hold our fundraising events there.
Thanks to all those who supported JCF Mexico at their 1st Cookies and Carols event on 9/12/17 supporting MexiCan and Puerto Morelos Cause4Paws and to everyone who came along to support JCF North Devon’s Carol’s for Clarity on 23/12/17. Both events were a great success and we’re hoping to repeat them in December 2018.
