J&C Joel complete the Calderdale Way
In June 2019, J&C Joel completed the Calderdale Way to raise money for charity.
The Calderdale Way is a 50-mile-long walk around the countryside of West Yorkshire. The money raised from the fundraiser went towards the charities Theatre’s Trust and Candlelighters.
Theatre’s Trust is the company’s chosen charity for the 40th anniversary year. The purpose of Theatre’s Trust is to protect and support excellent theatre buildings, which meet the needs of their communities.
The Candlelighters charity supports families facing children’s cancer in Yorkshire, this was chosen by the J&C Joel team as a charity which is important to them.
J&C Joel colleagues split into five teams, each completed a ten mile stretch of the walk in tandem. Despite the unexpected arrival of dismal Yorkshire weather, the teams had a great day and completed the event in under 5 hours. At the end of the event, the teams met in Sowerby Bridge to celebrate their achievement.
J&C Joel would like to thank everyone who supported and donated for the fundraiser. J&C Joel is thrilled that the event raised an outstanding £1000 for Theatre’s Trust and £1448.50 for Candlelighters.
