Jewson goes green and pledges support for Barnardo’s

We recently announced the launch of our new two-year ‘together’ charity partnership with Barnardo’s, a charity that supports over 100,000 children, young people and their families every year. Since 2002, we have raised over £2 million for worthy causes including Help the Hospices, the British Heart Foundation, Great Ormond Street and Cancer Research UK.

The new partnership was celebrated with a launch event at the head office in Binley, which marked the start of the ‘Go Green’ week of fundraising activities – aimed at kicking off proceedings in a big way. Activities include a cricket match, a five-mile run as well as a chance for Jewson employees to display their skills in a week long football competition.

Our Managing Director Peter Hindle MBE commented: “As part of our commitment to sustainable development, Jewson has a long and well established tradition of supporting many local community projects and charities. Our staff are incredibly enthusiastic about our new partnership with Barnardo’s and have already started planning some truly inspiring fundraising events and activitities with our customers and suppliers”.
