Friday night saw our "Buffet and a Band" night, which was a last minute thing to replace our GOLD Charity Ball, which sadly had to be cancelled.
What a great night it was! 🥂
We spent Thursday and Friday baking, cooking and preparing food for the buffet. (We went a little bit overboard with the amount! 😂)
We kept with the gold theme as the whole point of it was because it's #childhoodcancerawarenessmonth. So we had gold tops to wear, gold balloons, gold napkins, gold table confetti and our cupcakes that my sister and I had made had edible gold spray or the gold ribbon cake toppers!
The turn out was fantastic- we pretty much had a full house, and everyone seemed to have a great night.
The band, The Do Theys, were amazing. Really interacted with the guests and were brilliant with the kids too (who we had bought inflatable guitars to help keep them occupied!) Very aptly, one of the songs that was included in their set was GOLD by Spandau Ballet. 💛
The final amount raised from that night, after costs, was a fantastic ⭐£350⭐
For a last minute event, arranged in less than 3 weeks, we are over the moon with raising this!
Thankyou so much to everyone who supported us, from Sidley Working Mens Club for giving us the venue, the band for being amazing, all of you who bought tickets and raffle tickets and attended, those who donated raffle prizes, and of course our wonderful team at JJST for all your hard work setting up and the food preparation!
We could not do any of this without all you wonderful people and we are so grateful to you all for continuously supporting us and Jack's charity, and especially our team, who do all of this in our free time and for no personal gain other than doing it for Jack and the children we help.
Our next event organised is another Cake and Bake Sale on Sat 9th November. You can find more details about this in our events section.

We are so overwhelmed with the support we had on Sunday for our Double Dog Show Extravaganza!
2 dog shows in one day for 2 charities. Us (JJST) and Hrvab, Healey House.
The morning show was for JJST and the afternoon one for HRVAB. 18 classes in each, with pedigree, non pedigree and novelty classes, so something for everyone.
The weather was great overall, despite the couple of heavy showers we had, and the turnout was amazing! And the feedback from everyone was great!
Both morning and afternoon shows were equally attended which is just amazing!Definitely something we will do again.😊
We also had our stall there with our merchandise, homemade cakes, cold drinks, tombola and a couple of little competitions.
We haven't got the exact total, but we are looking at over £700!!!!! And that's just for Jack Jeffreys Superhero Trust!!
We will update you with the final totals when we get them.
But for us, this fantastic amount of money will cover the costs for at least 2 if not nearly 3 of Jack's VIP Box visits!
Thankyou to everyone who helped and supported this event, but a very special Thankyou to my mum and Sharon, who organised it all and ran it! You are both amazing! 💖
Here are some photos of the winners, and the first photo was our Dog of the Day, who was picked by myself and Jill from HRVAB.
Today we held 🎈Jack's Birthday Bash! 🎈
We decided a while back that we wanted to hold a big birthday party for Jack, so we had the party at our local community centre.
The main goal of today was a party for Jack, but obviously if we could raise a bit of money for the charity while we were at it, then why not! But, we would have been pleased just to break even. However, it went really well! 😊
After taking out all costs, we raised a wonderful 🎈£245! 🎈
We had AME Mobile Disco to do music and games which were absolutely brilliant- the kids loved it! 🎶🎤🎵
We hired the Superhero bouncy castle and soft play from Airplay Inflatables. Bouncy Castle & Softplay Hire. This was hugely popular. Everyone loves a bouncy castle, and the little ones could play in the ball pit and the diddy cars were played with by both kids and adults! (Well Jack's nanny mostly! 😂)
We had hot food, cakes and refreshments available. Huge thanks to our team in the kitchen! Not an easy job but you all did it brilliantly! 🍔🌭🍟
Big thanks to our Face Painting girls who did brilliantly as usual! 🎨
We had some little competitions aswell- tombola, guess how many sweets, a raffle and a new one for us- match the name to the teddy. This was very popular! Definitely one we will do again! Thankyou to all who manned these!
But most of all, THANKYOU to all of YOU who supported this event. By attending or by donating things for us to use. Not only did you help us have a great party for Jack's birthday, but you've helped to raise more money for his charity that will go on to help poorly children and their families. We could not do any of this without you all. 💖
On Friday the 21st June at the Little Common Sports Pavillion teams gathered to put heir quizzing skills to the test, in aid of the trust in the first Jack Jeffreys Summer Quiz night.
A great time was had by all and an amazing £294 was raised with the 'The Buffet Boffins' winning via a tie break!
Phil Holmes a friend of the family and passionate supporter of the trust, completed the 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 47 minutes.
So far he has raised an amazing £270 for the trust
Well done Phil.

Our Cake and Bake Farye on 23rd February at St Peter's Community Centre in Bexhill-on-sea raised an amazing £480!!!
Thankyou so much to everyone who came to support this, to Courteney's for donating the cake for one of the competitions, to those who donated bakes and tombola prizes and also to everyone who helped to run the event. We could not have done this without you all!
Today Team Jack hosted a cake sale at our local community centre to raise funds for Christmas for the children and their families on Pinckney ward at St George's hospital in Tooting. Together with a raffle and 3 little "guess" competitions, we raised an amazing £441!! To add to this total, Jack's old toddler group, which his baby cousin now attends, held a raffle on Tuesday and raised £112!! That along with a further donation of £30 we have managed to get a total of £583!!
A couple more donations took this to £630, which we took to the ward on 25th November.
All money went towards providing Christmas decorations for the ward, as well as some presents for the kids and also to provide the families with a buffet on Christmas day.
Another raffle at the beginning of December by Jacks toddler group raising a further £100, and one at Jack,s Nanny's dog club raising £70, meant a further £170 for them! We took this up to them on Wednesday 19th December
So a total of £800!!
Just amazing. Thankyou to all those involved.
