This month's article has been written by the JLD's Charity Representative, Jessica Tallon.

 

As Charity Representative of the Devon and Somerset JLD, I actively encourage JLD members to raise money for the JLD charity of the year through organised charity events and JLD social events.
  
In November 2016, the Devon and Somerset JLD committee voted for YMCA Exeter to be their charity of the year for 2017. YMCA Exeter supports young people in Exeter through a wide range of Youth Services including homelessness support, youth clubs and a mentoring scheme for ex-offenders.
To get our fundraising efforts off to a good start, 7 JLD members set themselves the challenge of participating in the YMCA Sleep Easy 2017 event which involved spending a night sleeping rough in the grounds of Exeter Castle on 4 March 2017. Despite the terrible weather conditions with strong winds and rain throughout the night, our participating JLD members spent the night sleeping on the cobbles with nothing but a sleeping bag and a cardboard box. The JLD set themselves a fundraising target of £500.
I am pleased to report that the Devon and Somerset JLD raised an incredible £830 for YMCA Exeter, smashing their initial fundraising target of £500.
 
Upcoming charity events
 
On 9 May 2017, the Devon and Somerset JLD will be hosting a wine, cheese and charity quiz night to help raise money for YMCA Exeter.
Additionally, the Devon and Somerset JLD will be hosting a vintage Hollywood themed summer ball on 9 June 2017 at Sandy Park. This will be a fantastic event including a three course meal, charity raffle, photobooth, jazz band and DJ.
 
Details of the above events will be emailed to all Devon and Somerset JLD members shortly.
If you require any further information or would like to get involved in any of our fundraising events, please do not hesitate to contact us at dsjld17@gmail.com.
