Our Charity Work


The Jones Robinson Group has supported many charities since inception in 1998. During 2018 and 2019 alone we raised and donated a total of £78,000. Because of the pandemic, all our charity events in 2020 and 2021 had to be cancelled, however, in 2020, Charles Robinson carried out a solo cycle challenge to raise some much needed cash for our two nominated charities, Newbury Cancer Care and Julia's House hospice in Devizes. He cycled from our Newbury office to our Devizes office and back, in one day, along the Kennet and Avon canal... and it poured down all day! This event alone raised over £6,000.

We have resumed our charity events this year and have added a third charity to our list, Naomi House & Jacksplace in Winchester. Our JustGiving page link is HERE which enables us to raise funds for all three nominated charities and share the total raised funds between them - our target is £12,000 for the year.

THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE

Our biggest event in 2022 has been completing the Three Peaks Challenge on 11-12 June and the team of 12 - christened our Blinding Peakers! - Anna Hill, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Caroline Wright, Charles Robinson, Chloe Morey, Lucy Coombes, Mel Lord, Rachel Crayton, Sam Norman, Sara Robinson, Steph Smith and Toyah Leonard - set off on Friday 10 June, from Newbury, for the long drive up to Scotland. Their first challenge was to climb Ben Nevis early the morning after. Unfortunately, due to very bad weather, with gusts of up to 70mph, it was deemed unsafe to continue and they were forced back down before reaching the peak (along with many other teams who were attempting the same challenge). Scafell Pike was a little better, weather-wise, but still tough climbing in the dark on Saturday overnight. Then the following morning, Snowdon had sunshine and blue skies, but was the hardest climb of all, being the last mountain and with the team having had hardly any sleep.

Never were they so grateful to get into their own beds last night once home!

We are raising funds all year for our charities, so if you've not donated yet, please do so HERE!
