May 2023 update

Well in our last update in April 2021 we thought it was the quietest time ever for us to do in-person fundraising events and didn’t reckon on the hiatus lasting so long but happily the North Devon JCF team has now been able to meet up a few times and have plans for a fantastic fundraiser in Barnstaple in July for a fantastic local small charity to get things underway – watch this space!!

December 2019 update

In November, Emma and team at JCF Sussex held their first quiz night which was very successful and a good time was had by all! As a result of the quiz night we were able to send £410.00 to Hessa’s Helpless Hounds who are based in Hertforshire, UK.

December was a very busy month with JCF Mexico holding their annual Cookies & Carols event, followed by a Festival of Trees and then Christmas Music Madness.
Fundación Aitana AC, a children’s cancer unit in Cancun benefited from these events.

In the UK, JCF North Devon held 2 Christmas events including traditional community carol singing and a collection of popular Christmas songs – both events hosted by Tamsin Ball (JCF Patron) and Meg Scoins. Funds raised from these events are being added to the amounts going to North Devon Animal Ambulance and Special Olympics North Devon which will be handed over in May 2020.

October 2019 update

In August JCF Sussex held their first sponsored walk at Tilgate Park, Crawley raising funds for Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary thanks to Emma and her team.

Also in August, JCF Mexico, with Jaden and team held a rooftop Zumbathon (in the Caribbean shade!!) and a Variety Night with funds raised going to SOS El Arca and Mexipaws.

In September JCF North Devon held a Food & Drink quiz including food samples which was good fun! Proceeds to be added to the amount being raised for North Devon Animal Ambulance and Special Olympics North Devon.

April 2019 update

Although our website News page seems to be a bit quiet our volunteers are still keeping busy.

Since the last update JCF North Devon has held a couple of quiz nights but Jaden’s team in Puerto Morelos has been very busy! Since January there has been a wine tasting evening, a Sangria competition and regular bingo afternoons. Next on the list is a Margarita competition which is being held on 25th May. See our events page for information and if in doubt please check our Facebook pages for the UK and Mexico.

JCF 10 Year Anniversary Celebration – 21st June 2019

Wow what an event!! After a few travel hiccups Jaden made it all the way from Puerto Morelos, Mexico to Barnstaple, North Devon, UK – the home of JC Fundraising for our 10 Year JCF Anniversary Celebration on 21st June. There were a few travel hiccups but he got there with just half an hour to spare!

The celebration took us back 10 years to when JCF first started by revisiting the songs made famous by Olivia Newton-John. It was a great evening enjoyed by all and it resulted in us giving a donation of £420.00 to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.
