Our lovely Shrewsbury branch are always keen to get involved with the local community!
Last weekend, along with a local Scout troop, they spent their day manning a water station at The Shrewsbury Half Marathon. With friendly faces and encouraging cheers, they handed tired runners their well-deserved bottles of water en route.
One of the charities supported by the event is Severn Hospice, a charity close to our hearts, as our Resourcer’s mum was treated there before tragically passing away.
If your charity would like to get involved with Jane Lewis please get in touch.
Staff at all branches were invited to bake or buy their choice of cupcakes, culminating in an irresistible display of delicious bakes, from homemade triple chocolate muffins to low-calorie Weightwatchers recipes.
Cakes were bought and enjoyed throughout the day, alongside fun games and a celebrity cupcake quiz.
In total, £184 was raised for the charity, with more to come! Every penny counts in the fight against dementia.
Alzheimer’s Society work towards beating dementia and helping all of those living with the condition to live a better life. From the point of diagnosis onwards, the charity reach out and provide support to everyone who needs it, from online information to local community awareness.
Jane Lewis Marketing Manager, Paula Bellis said, “My dad has had dementia since he was about 65, so I have seen the huge impact the condition has on families; and also, how much of a lifeline charities like Alzheimer’s Society provide.”

We are really grateful to Hannah for her kind words about Jane Lewis and the care we provide…
“I just wanted to send my compliments to Donna that does shifts in [a North Wales care home]. My Grandma lives there now and Donna cares for her most days and she is great with her. My Grandma is always praising her to us.”
~ Thanks Hannah, we are so pleased your Grandma is settled and happy with her care.
Our client Kieran, 30, painted this picture of his favourite basketball teams emblem.
Kieran is a huge fan of the Cheshire Phoenix which was founded in 1984. He has been following the team from a very early age.
Cheshire Phoenix also have a wheelchair basketball team, which Kieran plays for. The team began in 2014. The team encourages young people with and without disabilities to participate and be a part of the team.
Jane Lewis has previously sponsored Kieran’s team to help with purchasing new team jerseys and equipment.
We are very proud of Kieran’s picture and have it hanging in full view where everyone can see.
