(L-R) Whale HR Executive Allana Thomson with Colin Kennedy from Jordan’s Gift and Whale employee Alan Rainey who nominated the charity
On Thursday 6th September Whale held its annual charity BBQ at their factory in Bangor. Each year employees are asked to suggest local charities to benefit from the proceeds of the event and this year’s nominated charity was Jordan’s Gift.
A Northern Ireland charity set up to remember Jordan Kennedy who died suddenly, the main purpose of Jordan’s Gift is to honour Jordan’s memory by raising funds to assist young people who are disadvantaged by way of disability or need.
A total of £800 was raised for the charity by Whale employees during the BBQ which included a charity raffle with many great prizes including vouchers for local restaurants and much more.
Colin Kennedy from Jordan’s gift said, “I am delighted that Whale chose Jordan’s Gift as their nominated charity at their annual BBQ. This very generous donation will ensure that we continue to honour Jordan’s memory by helping young people who are disadvantaged. Thank you!”
Managing Director for Whale, Patrick Roberts, also commented, “I’d like to thank all our employees who attended this year’s BBQ and helped raise this staggering amount of money which will go towards a very worthwhile cause. Once again Whale employees went over and above to do their bit for charity. I’d also like to thank Village Kitchen who provided the food on the day – a huge success all round!”
