Daniel Monahan v Lee Hazeltine December 2020
2020 sees lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions but Daniel and Lee still made it happen for Jordie On You (JOY) and Cancer Research UK playing a gruelling 1st to 21 tournament to raise money for both charities.
Abbey Garden Garage Sale goes off Great despite Lockdown in 2020!
With folk being locked in and only allowed to mix outdoors and with most of JOY charity fund raisers being postponed we had to find another way.......... Luckily Steven Carter got real bored and decided to start the Abbey Garden/Garage sale for JOY!
A social distancing compliant sale was organised where people could have their own stall in their gardens, they paid a subscription fee to JOY and all else raised they kept for themselves, kind of like a huge social distancing car boot sale meaning funds were raised for you but those struggling with reduced wages could also sell some junk to make ends meat! A win win situation for all.
Despite torrential rain the sale was a huge hit! and people came from other towns to grab a bargain! The event was so popular that we have been asked to make it an annual event! So why not join in with us in 2021!
Panther Taxis of Cambridge heard about what JOY intended to do and kindly donated to us a fully functioning 6 meter by 3 meter pop up gazebo complete with hooks and sale tables so that we can have our very own pop up charity stall at more venues as well as what will now be an annual event - The JOY Abbey Garden/Garage Sale.
Thank you Panther Taxis of Cambridge.
Mason uses Lockdown 2020 to raise £1000 for JOY
Mason Carter of Cambridge annually raises money for JOY by growing vegetable plants from seed and then selling them at an annual event that happens on the green outside his home each year, obviously with Covid-19 this wasn't going to happen in 2020 but Mason was determined not to let that stop him!
Mason decided that he was still going to grow the veg plants and not only help JOY by raising money from the sale but he was going to help his community by encouraging people to buy his plants and eat their own produce! saving people money and also helping mental health sufferers that were now finding they have no routine by not working! growing their own veg provided a small routine and some awesome vegetables too!
Cambridge Property Investments Ltd got wind of what Mason intended on doing and set him the Mammoth task of raising £1000 and his personal reward would be a fantastic skateboard donated by them!
Mason worked hard throughout the entire lockdown and never gave up! ultimately he hit his target, raised £1000, raised awareness of our charity and get himself a well deserved Skateboard!
Here's Mason with his new skateboard, Thank you Mason for hitting your £1000 target and all of the hard work and thank you Cambridge Property Investments Ltd for rewarding such a deserving young man! Mason really deserves his skateboard.
Even COVID-19 cant stop 6 Year old Jack! 2020
After the onset of covid-19 and the lockdown young Jack age 6 decided to set himself a mountain to climb! Well not just one.............
Jacks Dad Lee who heads up "Team Alpha" is a resident fundraiser and committee member for JOY, knowing the difficulties we face with fundraising this year and Lees own Mount Everest trip having to be postponed for a year Lee decided to something different that could comply with Covid regulations, hearing all that was going on young Jack at just age 6 spoke up and asked his dad could he do something for JOY?
Jack joined the final peak of the 3 peak challenge last year and loved it so he asked his dad could he do it again, only this time as he was six could he do six mountains! Yes he set his mind on doing SIX.
We can confirm that today Saturday 1st August Jack climbed his 6th mountain!
What an amazing young man Jack really is following in his dads footsteps and later on this month Lee will be cycling from Edinburgh Castle to Cambridge in the aid of JOY too.
What an amazing family - Thank you Lee and Jack.
Im sure you will all agree with us at JOY Jack is a true inspiration!
