And just like that, another year draws to a close. But, before we let our minds turn to new new beginnings, resolutions and reinventions, it’s important that we reminisce about the year we leave behind for just a moment. From exciting new products releases, pop-up openings and social milestones, to team trips, brand partnerships and introducing new additions to the Jamily - it really has been one heck of a year!
In amidst all the excitement 2022 has brought us, not to mention the constant buzz we all know and love so much here, I think I speak for all the team when I say that there is one notable achievement we are particularly proud of this year. And, if you’ve been following us for a while, I am sure you’ll know exactly what I am talking about. Towards the end of 2021, we made a pledge to raise money for a remarkable mental health charity we feel very passionate about: The Wave Project. Fast forward through months of hard work, determination, and infinite support from those around us, and we are incredibly excited and proud to announce that we have successfully hit our fundraising target of £10,000!
Over the last 10 years, The Wave Project has supported children and young adults who experience a range of physical and mental health issues using surf therapies. Pioneering the world’s first surf therapy course, the work that The Wave Project do is completely life changing for young adults and children. And, the money we have raised will support this remarkable charity by helping purchase specialist equipment, supplying transport, and maintain the use of good quality boards and wetsuits at their sessions.
On behalf of The Wave Project and all of us here at Jam Industries, we would like to to say a HUGE thank you to all involved… you know who you are! Between our charity car wash, online auction and raffle events, we have been absolutely blown away by the sheer amount of love and support we have received. The generosity and kindness from friends, family, and our customers, not to mention the incredible brands who have been part of our charity raffle and auction events, are a true vindication of this unforgettable achievement.
As we wave goodbye to 2022 and set our sights on the year ahead, we want to continue finding ways in which we are able to make a positive difference in the world and help others in need. To all of our friends, family and customers, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
