Jehu Group is delighted to announce that our Charity Partner for 2022-24 is ‘Y Bont’.
Earlier this year, Jehu employees were asked to nominate who they would like to become our Charity Partner. A range of charities were on the shortlist, and our Chairman Rene Jehu faced the difficult decision of choosing which one to be selected.
He said of his decision: “After much consideration, and whilst the all the charities nominated by our staff are very worthy, I have chosen Y Bont as JEHU’s Charity Partner. As a Bridgend-based family business, it will be an honour to make a real difference to this amazing charity within our local community”.
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 they face the challenge of raising over £300,000 in order to provide their crucial services. Jehu are excited to build a strong relationship with Y Bont; fundraising and getting involved with the charity and the families it cares for.
Julia Shaw, Fundraising & Marketing Manager at Y Bont commented on the partnership; “We are over the moon that Jehu Group have selected Y Bont as their charity partner for the next two years. We are looking forward to working together to raise funds for our family centre so that we can continue to carry out our vital work. Y Bont is a golden thread that runs through the children’s lives, for many we are a lifeline. We are here for them from 6 weeks of age and with the provisions of our after- school club, Saturday club and holiday club we can be a constant source of support to these children and their families’ right up until their teenage years.”
