Jewson scores fundraising goal

Published:  24 May, 2017

Jewson employees, suppliers and customers donned their shorts and football boots to raise more than £1,360 for Barnardo’s.

The charity football match was held on 9 May at The Laithwaite Community Stadium, the home of Woking FC. Customers and employees from local Jewson branches joined forces to create two teams – Farnham and Reading. Woking FC player, Scott Steele, made a guest appearance on the Farnham team, while former player Gary McDonald played for Reading. Farnham proved to be the stronger side on the night, securing a 5-4 win over Reading.

Arron Whiteley, branch manager at Jewson Bracknell, said: “Like Barnardo’s, Jewson is passionate about giving young people the best chance in life, so we’re proud to have raised more than £1,000 for the charity.

“Even though my team ended up being beaten by Farnham, it was still great fun to get together and have a kickabout while raising money for a worthy cause. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in the game or came out to show their support.”
