JBW Group save children's charity from closure PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 19 May 2015

The Imps (www.impsonline.com) is a charity that helps children from disadvantaged backgrounds, taking them off the street and into the disciplined, military like environment of a world class motorcycle display team.

The Chief Executive of JBW, Jamie Waller, was an Imp from the age of 5 until he was 16. Three months ago he heard the terrible news that the Imps were under threat of closure and needed urgent funding. £36,000 was required and fast.

In typical entrepreneurial fashion Waller turned to Crowdfunding for help. Through the online campaign (www.crowdfunder.co.uk/imps-motocycle-display-team-for-young-children) Waller, along with his long term friend and another ex-Imp Graham Dodridge, raised over £18,000. With only 2 weeks left before the Imps are due to put on their first public performance for 2015, time has run out to reach the £36,000 target.

On 18th May, Waller and Dodridge, through their highly successful businesses, signed a sponsorship deal to fund the difference. JBW Group (www.jbw.co.uk) and Silver (www.silver.agency) will become the Imps title sponsors for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. The Imps display team will be re-branded “Imps - powered by JBW and Silver”.

Commenting on the deal, Waller said: “How could anyone stand by and watch 45 years of hard work and hundreds of children's futures be ruined. Through the generosity of JBW, Silver and 90 other donors that have pledged money through Crowdfunder we have saved the Imps. Today is a happy day for all of us.”

The fundraising can't stop here though, and anyone reading this that has the desire to help should log on and donate. Every penny raised will go direct to the children. http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/imps-motocycle-display-team-for-young-children.

Over the next 12 months we will be looking for a replacement title sponsor to take over from JBW and Silver.
