Jehu pleased with a super start to its two-year Charity Partnership with Y Bont

Earlier this year, Jehu Group announced it would be supporting ‘Y Bont’ as Charity Partner for 2022 – 2024.   

Y Bont is a specialist day nursery and family centre based in Bridgend, which provides a unique range of services for children with disabilities, complex medical & life limiting conditions, and their families. It is a small independent charity, and every year faces the challenge of raising over £300,000 in order to provide their crucial services. 

Jehu are excited to develop a strong relationship with Y Bont over the next two years, fundraising and getting involved with the charity along with the families that it cares for. We have enjoyed understanding more about them over the past few months, planning exciting events to fundraise and provide support to the development of their family centre. 

Below is a sneak peak of what we have been up to and what is coming up over the next few months. We are particularly looking forward to Y Bont’s Family Fun Day on the 16th of July!

Over the past few months, Jehu’s staff have already raised nearly £500 through:

  • Breakfast Club: our famous, monthly Breakfast Friday Rolls
  • Dress Down Fridays  
  • Y Bont’s 100k in May: eight employees took on the challenge of completing 100km through walking, running or cycling through the month of May.  The team in fact clocked up over 900km between them – well done Team, great effort! 
  • Great Jehu Bake Off: over the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday, our teams battled away in the Great ‘Jehu-bilee’ British Bake off.  There were some real masterpieces created!

We have a busy schedule to really ramp up the fundraising and support for Y Bont over the next few months, here are some key activities:  

Y Bont Family Fun Day

This Saturday, 16th of July 2022, Jehu are supporting Y Bont’s Family Fun Day from 12pm at Pen Y Bont Football Club (Llangewydd Road, Bridgend, CF31 4JU). There are lots of family-fun activities planned, such as a big top circus with shows and workshops; 5 a side football; inflatable obstacle course; horse rides; llama petting; blue light service visits; messy and soft play; face painting; bouncy castles and fairground rides.  There will also be live music inside the club from 5pm onwards, so pop along and show your support for this great cause!

Wales in 2 Days: North to South Bike Ride
We will shortly be announcing the launch of our inaugural ‘Wales in 2 Days’ cycling event.  

At the end of September, seven of our adventurous employees will be braving the Welsh elements for a mammoth 320km on their bikes. They will be spanning Wales coast to coast, from Llandudno to Bridgend, in aid of Y Bont. We have no doubt that our Team will smash it and look forward to sharing full details of this very soon.
