CJC’s UK Operations Team Takes Action To Support Spread a Smile
LONDON, 15 SEPTEMBER, 2023 – Crown Jewels Consultant Ltd (CJC), the award-winning and leading market data technology consultancy and service provider, is ploughing into this year’s Tough Mudder challenge in continued support of Spread a Smile, a non-profit organisation aiming to bring joy to seriously ill children and young people across the country.
Following CJC’s recent donation of 10 iPads and cases, the UK Operations teams will attempt Tough Mudder’s 10 km-long endurance event later this month. Built on the foundation of teamwork, Operation team members (Louis Parkinson, Jamie Gow, Kai Granville, Callum Sharp, and Jack Kennedy) will take on the fast-paced, punishing obstacle course to support Spread a Smile and the course will include Arctic Enema, Well Swung, and Cage Crawl.
Spectator tickets are available at £20 to watch and support in person.
Paul Gow, CJC’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer has generously agreed to match 100% of donations raised.
CJC actively supports Spread a Smile, regularly promoting the organisation at industry events and volunteering at both their London office and at events. Spread a Smile is a charity dedicated to improving the time spent by seriously ill children in hospitals, aiming to stimulate children’s minds away from treatment and alleviate the boredom and monotony associated with sustained hospital stays by providing various forms of entertainment. The charity is guided by an advisory team of medical practitioners and entertains thousands of children every year.
Jamie Gow, Operations Team Leader (UK) at CJC said, “We are all excited to be participating in the event and look forward to raising money to help a good cause like Spread a Smile.”
Lucy Jackson, Chief Executive Officer at Spread a Smile said, "We are so grateful to everyone at CJC for their incredible support. Thanks to their generous donation of iPads and cases, we'll be able to reach even more isolated patients in hospital through our virtual visits. Plus we're in awe of the CJC UK Operations team for taking on the Tough Mudder challenge and helping to raise vital funds to spread even more smiles up and down the country. Thank you to everyone involved and we'll be behind you every muddy step of the way!"
Paul Gow, CJC’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer said, “CJC is committed and strongly supports the welfare and children’s wellbeing. Many of CJC’s staff are actively volunteering and raising money in support of Spread a Smile, with Tough Mudder being the most recent example.”
