Jonathan Lee Recruitment raises £1,500 for The Guide Dog Association.

14 Aug 14 - 9:14AM  | Recruitment

 For the fourth consecutive year, Jonathan Lee Recruitment was a proud sponsor of Jaguar Land Rover’s Annual Interdepartmental Charity Shield. The football tournament, which was held on the 20th June at the Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry, helped to raise £1,500 for The Guide Dog Association.

A total of 48 teams gallantly competed to lift the trophy in a World Cup style tournament. Similarly to the World Cup, the event was exceptionally organised and referees were FA qualified, volunteering their time for the great cause.

Jonathan Lee Recruitment’s employees, who are always ready to support all types of charity causes, took a part in this exciting football tournament.

Tony Street, Jaguar Land Rover Account Manager, captained Jonathan Lee Recruitment team who represented England in the competition. Tony commented “The Jonathan Lee squad did its best to emulate the England team - naturally failing to pass through the group stages, but their effort and commitment could not be faulted. They can now concentrate on the League.”

The event carried on late into the evening and at the end of the very enjoyable day, Cameroon beat Australia in the final. This year’s tournament held added poignancy, paying tribute to the events founder and mainstay David Jones who sadly passed away prior to the event. Not wishing to let Dave’s great work be forgotten, Jaguar Land Rover’s Richards Barrett-Constantinou, Dan Zoka and James Livingston organised the event. All concerned found out how much time and commitment Dave had personally devoted to previous Charity Shield events as the arrangements and detailed planning unfolded.

 

James Tilley, Recruiter from Jonathan Lee Recruitment’s Engineering Manufacturing and Commercial team said:  “It was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyable for everyone involved. It was brilliant to be involved in such a well-run event and play a part in raising money for such a great cause, The Guide Dogs Association. Our team made a courageous effort and will definitely be back next year fitter and stronger than ever!”.

The Guide Dog Association’s John Morris accepted the cheque from Richard, Dan and Tony at their £16 million pound facility; the National Breeding Centre in Gaydon after the tournament. The money raised from this and other planned events will go toward sponsoring a Guide Dog named in Dave Jones’ honour, in what is fitting tribute.

As always, we couldn’t be more proud of our recruiters who dedicate their private time to support charity organisations and those less fortunate.
