Last month team members from Jonathan Lee Recruitment were delighted to support Telford Mind by attending their Charity Summer Ball.
The inaugural charity ball, held at Telford Hotel and Golf Resort, aimed to raise awareness and funds for the local charity.
During the evening guests enjoyed a drink reception, 3-course meal and a silent auction/raffle to help raise vital funds for the charity’s work. Guest speaker Danielle Brown; double gold medal winner (Beijing 2008) and Para Olympian for Archery (London 2012), was also in attendance at the event, as well as Joe Lockley - Anthony Joshua’s on screen opponent in William Hill’s latest advert. The 27-year-old rising amateur heavyweight star, who is currently unbeaten as an amateur and trains at Great Wyrley Boxing Club, in Staffordshire, beat off stiff opposition from 700 other hopefuls to be chosen for the role of Joshua's opponent.
A popular local charity at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, Telford Mind has benefited from the support and donations from the team. Jonathan Lee, founder and Chairman, said: “For over 40 years we have been committed to supporting the welfare of the wider community and I am immensely proud of the team’s continual enthusiasm and dedication to this cause.”
“I am delighted to support Telford Mind; a local charity that has been chosen because of the excellent work they do in supporting those experiencing emotional distress or mental health problems.”
Louise Heap, Chief Executive Officer at Telford Mind, said: “I would like to thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment for their continued support of Telford Mind. As a charitable organisation we are always very grateful for any donations that we receive.”
