As Patron members of the Whizz-Kidz Business Alliance, we continue to support the charity in a number of ways. Whizz-Kidz is a UK-based charity dedicated to transforming the lives of disabled children by providing the vital equipment and life skills they need to reach their full potential.
We support the charity through mentoring sessions, employability workshops, work placement opportunities, and skills training, helping young wheelchair users fulfil their potential and realise their future ambitions. We also support Whizz-Kidz through Motability sales donations and fundraising activities and, in 2020, we raised over £55,000 for the charity.
We’re delighted to be able to share the latest Impact Report, ‘Impact No Matter What’, from Whizz-Kidz. The need for life-changing mobility equipment and support didn’t stop during the pandemic, and we’re proud to have been able to support Whizz-Kidz through a really difficult year.
Supporting charities and our communities is something close to our hearts here at JMG. Colleagues are able to use a volunteering day allowance to support projects they feel passionately about. We also encourage teams across all our sites and departments to take part in fundraising and volunteering activities, helping to make a difference to their local community.
Here’s just a small glimpse at the charity and volunteer work carried out by our colleagues:
