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.

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 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.
