Evans Jones 12 Charities of Christmas campaign passes halfway mark

Planning and property experts Evans Jones have been giving big to support Gloucestershire charities impacted by the coronavirus.

The Cheltenham-based business set out to make a donation to 12 charities across its 12 Days of Christmas campaign, making a donation to a different charity each day.

With eight receiving contributions so far, each has been specifically chosen because they are local or support causes particularly affected by the pandemic.

Evans Jones kicked off the campaign on December 3 with Leonard Cheshire the first worthy recipient.

The Hollie Gazzard Trust, The Chamwell Centre, Pied Piper Appeal, Maggie's, Cheltenham & Gloucester Hospitals Charity, Catch A Smile and James Hopkins Trust have also since received donations.

At the campaign launch, managing director David Jones said: "We normally spend money on gifts and festivities at Christmas, but this year given the year we've had and the struggle for many charities and people hard hit by the pandemic, it felt like the right thing to do to give something back instead."

Evans Jones continues to reveal each day's charity on social media, with four still to be announced.
