JKR Charity Ball

On Saturday 5th of Nov the JKR Charity Ball will take place at the Grand Central Hotel to raise funds for the company’s partner charity The Catherine McEwan Foundation.

The Ball is organised by Lynn and Alexander Rankin in loving memory of JKR’s founder John Rankin who lost his flight against cancer in 2019. John was known within his company and within the business community as someone who was fair and kind, with a strong sense of duty to ‘give back’ to the community and charitable causes.

The loss of John was devastating for Lynn and Alex but they are determined to honour John’s wishes to ‘give back.’ The Rankin’s chose to work with the Catherine McEwan Foundation as they were blown away with the teams dedication and the positive impact that the the charity has made over the last 20 years to those living with IBD in Scotland.

Lynn said: ‘To be able to work with a charity who’s core values would have very much aligned with those of John’s is a really special way to honour his memory. The Catherine McEwan Foundation are making a real difference to the IBD community in Scotland and we are proud to support that in any way we can.’

Tickets and tables for the ball are on sale now at the price of £85.00 and £850.00. The ticket includes a welcome drink, delicious 3 course meal and a program of entertainment.

Tea Jenny 2022

Tea Jenny is back – everyone’s favourite lunch for ladies, an afternoon of fun, fundraising and much more.

This landmark event celebrates the TENTH anniversary of her annual afternoon shindig – it would have been the twelfth but lockdowns got in the way.

It’s on Sunday, September 11 at the Doubletree Hilton Glasgow with the legendary Jenny Cook, the young ambassador to the Catherine McEwan Foundation who has raised more than £500,000 over the years for IBD causes and the sick children of Scotland.

Tea Jenny is a much-loved afternoon tea event which sees glammed up ladies in their hundreds flocking to celebrate with the queen of Scottish fundraising.

Jenny is an inspirational young superstar who – despite battling her own afflictions – has not only excelled in education, but is selfless in her efforts to help others and has raised thousands to help out other kids and adults with Crohn’s and Colitis.

There are a LOT of surprises on the entertainment front, the plans will blow you away with lots of big surprises, so book now as this event sells out EVERY time.
