Children at the Harlow-based nursery are among the first recruits to sign up for the charity’s latest fundraising campaign, offering supporters of all ages the chance to see their small change make a big difference to the lives of local people facing a life-limiting diagnosis.
St Clare community fundraiser Dani De’ath said: “Our Jam Jar Army is our simplest fundraising campaign yet, and really is so easy to do. To get started all you need to do is get a jam jar, enjoy the contents and then stick one of our Jam Jar Army labels on it. Then start filling your jar with spare change or any coins you have lying about.
“You can have as many jam jars as you like; perhaps one at home and one at work, and don’t forget to place it somewhere you will see it regularly. It is ideal for schools, youth groups, businesses or your kitchen windowsill at home. Just about anyone can take part!”
Jam Jar Army labels are available by contacting the St Clare fundraising team on 01279 773750 or [email protected]
Dani added: “Once you have filled your jam jar, pop the ‘Thank you for your donation’ sticky strip across the lid to seal it, and return it to us here at the Hospice in Hastingwood or drop it into any of our St Clare shops. You can then get another Jam Jar Army label and start again!
“You will be surprised how quickly your small change can add up, and every penny raised will help us sustain and grow our caring services supporting local families from across West Essex and the East Herts border now and into the future.”
Jam Jar Army is proudly sponsored by The English Cream Tea Company, based in White Roding.
