Central England Concert Band Needs your Vote to raise Funds for Jericho

One of Jericho’s Founders Organises Concert

David Harmer, one of the Founders of The Jericho Foundation is a man of many talents! As a member of the Central England Concert Band, David is organising a concert to raise funds for Jericho – its mission is to support marginalised people to become fulfilled, skilled and employed.

The Central England Concert Band in full flow!

David has created a project for the latest round of the Aviva Community Fund, to allow the costs to be covered, rather than coming from the ticket sales. You can read more about the concert, and what CECB hope to achieve, in terms of supporting Jericho. A simple and quick registration, and you will be able to give your support to the project by using your 10 votes!

Philip Gay, Income Generation Manager for Jericho, says, “It was wonderful to be approached by David, one of the founding members of Jericho; when I heard about his idea, I was thrilled to be able to wholeheartedly support it. I am looking forward to the actual concert, and hope that David and the rest of the Band will win!”

Continuing, Gay highlighted some of the work that Jericho undertakes:

“The needs of the people we support vary greatly; some will need more care and guidance than others. Everyone is treated the same – as an individual with worth and potential, and Jericho won’t stop until every marginalised person is fulfilled, skilled and employed. We work with Survivors of Modern Slavery, some of whom have endured true horrors, as well as long-term unemployed, people with substance misuse issues, ex-Offenders, and others.”

If you would like to donate to Jericho, then you can take part in our J25 Challenge, where we are challenging our staff, volunteers and supporters to each raise or donate £25. You can get some ideas here, or simply text JERI10 to 70070, and you can make a difference today.
