Richard Sherry… Firestarter

At Jessops construction Headquarters, we never pass up an opportunity to raise funds for our chosen charity and our annual barbeque in September was no different.


The team took advantage of a dress down day, and at lunch time our commercial Manager and good all-rounder, Richard Sherry took on the task of lighting the barbeque - or in his native South African tongue 'braai'. Receptionist Caroline donned her pink apron and managed food operations from the kitchen, in a co-ordinated effort to feed hungry Jessops employees.


The staff based in Newark, enjoyed an afternoon of team building in the late summer sun and even enjoyed a visit from one of our now retired staff members, Jan who provided cake...who doesn't love a bit of cake? We managed to raise an impressive £60 for Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, this year's chosen charity. This now takes the total Jessops fundraising for this charity to just under £2,000.


Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance provides much needed specialist life-saving medical assistance to people when they need it. The helicopter can reach any point in the two counties in less than 20 minutes and on average can transfer a patient to hospital within 8 minutes...this all comes at a price. Each mission costs over £2100 and they fly at least 3 per day, every day. This means that each year they need to raise £2.1M to keep flying and saving lives.
