Local talent from La Motte Youth Service thanks to Ivor Richards great efforts provided live music all afternoon from a plethora of local talent adding ambience to the event. The Jacksons coffee car and Stuart’s Ice-cream van kept everyone refreshed after their picnics. BBC Radio Jersey gave an outside broadcast from the event too. The event could not have gone ahead without Mitch Couriard and the St Helier honoraries and St Johns ambulance team all making this a hugely successful event. We will be launching Jacksons Pride and Joy 2014 very soon and be calling for entries for next year before the end of 2013 so watch this space!
Leanda Jane Guy, JCG Foundation Director commented ‘A huge thank you to our corporate partner, Jacksons and everyone involved in making this such a fantastic event. A special mention for Alun Watkins, Headmaster of Victoria College, Sara Clews, Development Director and the Victoria College team for co-hosting the event with us and allowing Pride and Joy to take place on College Field. We look forward to building on its success going forward and making Jacksons Pride and Joy an annual event in the Jersey calendar and continuing to work with Jacksons as part of our corporate partner scheme to support JCG and local students via the JCG Foundation.’
