A Night at the Musicals was a wonderful musical fundraiser, hosted by Sarah Anastasiades and starring the vocal talents of JCF North Devon manager and classical crossover singer Tamsin Ball accompanied by Taya Lambden and Troy Ward-Waistell. £465 profit was raised with 80% of the money going to JCF North Devon’s chosen cause – the mental health support charity – Clarity and 20% of the money going to North Devon’s Community radio station The Voice FM.
A great day was had by all at the Great Hampstead Bark Off where Anneka Svenska, Peter Egan, Michelle Collins, Alan Carr and Marc the Vet were the celebrity Judges. Thanks to all those that attended the event and particularly those who supported our stall organised by Rachel Trafford where total of £45.26 was raised for IAPWA and Last Hope to Life Shelter.
JC Fundraising gives a very warm welcome to our new Patron Tamsin Ball. Tamsin is a classiscally trainer singer based in the North Devon and has been performing since the age of four in theatre productions such as shows, musicals and pantomimes. Tamsin is not only a classical singer but is well used to sing jazz, pop and other genres. Tamsin has performed at many prestigious charity and corporage functions at venues including the O2 Arena in London and the Louvre in Paris and she is no stranger to fundraising having raised thousands of pounds for her chosen charities. Not only has Tamsin joined JCF as our new patron she has also agreed to be a fundraising co-ordinator in North Devon so the team are looking forward to working with her very much.
All our thoughts are with the family and friends of our Patron Carrie Fisher as we hear the sad news that she passed away earlier today. Actress and novelist, Carrie has had many screen credits over the years but she is probably best known for her amazing role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. 27.12.16/ce

JC Fundraising andJCF Mexicofounder Jaden has been living in Mexico for about 6 months now and says “I am moved every day by the amount of uncared for animals here. I have 2 rescue dogs of my own and I so wish I could do more to help but its not easy in rented accommodation. We always carry a bag of dried food in the trunk of our car but its not enough. I want to do more, so I’m hoping to raise enough funds to purchase some land here and to build some shelters to house street dogs.
