🤩🤩🤩 We have some exciting news 🤩🤩🤩
📑 In 2019 JD Sport’s charity The JD Foundation chose to partner with SYP for a trial year. We are the first charity they had partnered with outside of Manchester and they wanted to see how it would work.
🙌🏻 Following a successful 12 months we were invited to submit an application for a two year partnership.
☑️ The application was successful and started on 1st January 2020 and due to end on 31st December 2021.
🥳🥳🥳 This is the exciting news 🥳🥳🥳
🥁🥁🥁 drum roll please 🥁🥁🥁
☎️ This week JD contacted us to tell us that they have decided already to extend the partnership until 31st December 2022! 👏🏻🎉
💷💷 As well as the financial support the partnership attracts, they also lend the support of their head office staff teams who give their ⌚️ time and 🎓 expertise to the partners and in their free time they participate in a variety of 💷 fundraising activities all year round.
