With the charity events taking off a storm and raffle prizes coming in fast and furious including companies that are wanting to support JOY by sending us cases of items to sell we found ourselves in extreme need of storage space. A fantastic local Cambridge landlord has got in touch and offered the entire use of his garage at one of his properties which is amazing as we can now up our game yet another notch and take a large step towards our goal of purchasing and sustaining a holiday home for children suffering bereavement and living with mental health conditions. What a fantastic gesture and another sign of amazing local community spirit.

Mason meets the Mayor!
Mason Carter age 12 decided he wanted to do something for Jordie On You!
Mason decided he would grow some vegetables in his green house but soon found he had way too many for his own families personal use so Mason decided to set up a stall outside of his home to raise money for JOY, most kids would have wanted to save for a playstation etc but not Mason, What a kid!!
A stall became available on the Dudley Park Family day and Mason jumped at the opportunity and not only raised money JOY but also got meet the Mayor of Cambridge.
A great day was had by all and Mason raised some good money for the charity and was soon joined by others wanting to make a difference, Its lovely and humbling to see Kids making a difference - After all the future belongs to them.

A Special Thank you: To Moo Creative:
All of us at JOY would like to say a really big thank you to Steve at Moo Creative for creating our logo's for us.
When we 1st started JOY we reached out for a graphic designer to create something special for our logo and literally within minutes Steve had replied, with background information he managed to create a logo that kept Jordie's name alive and also gave us something that could relate to children, something colourful yet meaningful and with the JOY logo in place everything else soonfollowed, Moo Creative never took a single penny from us and that sparked the every penny stays within the charity campaign because from Steve we quickly learned that there are great people in the world that are willing to help these Kids Suffering Bereavement and are willing to help us share Mental Health Awareness. - Thank you Steve & Moo Creative.
