JMP Foodservice: Star Employee
JMP Foodservice’s Rosie Fearnhead is raising money for Cancer Care by taking part in StarWalk.
The 28-year-old PA to Sales Director Shaun Atherton has raised almost £200 for the northern charity ahead of the 10k walk on May 18th. Rosie, who is taking part in the fundraising event with 12 of her friends, had an original target of £100 – with the group hoping to raise £1200 between them. She has already reached her goal, and with the help of JMP suppliers and customers she hopes to raise a further £100.
Rosie said: “I would like to thank all our customers who have sponsored me already. It has been really inspiring to see how many people have put their hands in their pockets for charity. A few people in particular have really supported me, including the Haddock Paddock in Sedbergh, which donated the money raised from selling carrier bags, Healthy Life in Skipton and the Cobblestone Café in Grassington.
“Our suppliers have also been very generous with Whitby Seafood pledging to donate £50.”
The money raised by the StarWalk will be used to support adults and children in North Lancashire and South Lakeland whose lives are affected by cancer.
Anyone wishing to donate can do so via Rosie’s JustGiving page or if you are a JMP customer, you can find a link on your latest invoice.
JMP Foodservice has a history of raising money for charity. Last year, Sales Managers Simon Broadbridge and Andrew Brierley-Jones cycled from The Cutty Sark in London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris raising £2000 for Cancer Research and Help the Heroes.
It doesn’t stop there. Chris Milburn, Storeman, is running the BUPA 10k in Manchester at the end of May to raise money for the NSPCC.
