We've had two new members join our group this month. They both work for valuable local charities and we couldn't be more pleased to have them on board. Raising awareness for local charities is paramount to us as a networking group and we look forward to seeing what Jon and Helen bring to the table.
Helen Lerwill – YoungDementia UK
Why did you decided to join Juice and what are you hoping to gain?
YoungDementia UK has been invited to join the group as one of Juice's charities of the year. Juice have already kindly supported us with a £500 donation and we are hoping that by being a member we can develop opportunities to work together with local businesses to support the charity. I am personally looking forward to learning from the group and developing my networking skills!
Jon Cox – Adventure Plus
Why did you decide to join Juice?
It’s great to be able to connect with local businesses through the Juice network. As a local charity, the support and encouragement we receive from businesses in the area is hugely appreciated. We hope we can give something back to those businesses too, as we get to know each other better.
What are you hoping to gain from being a member of Juice?
As local businesses are inspired by our vision and engagement with 7,000 children and young people every year, and we very much hope Juice members will feel able to contribute to a team effort as we work on design and develop a brand new cutting edge youth adventure centre here in West Oxfordshire.
