Charity Work

Here at J&F Drainage we love supporting Charity’s and the local community. Over the past 5 years we have been supporting many charity’s that have helped us personally at J&F Drainage. We feel that people have reached deep into their pockets to help and provide a better life for those that need it the most. We have massively benefited from these efforts in our time of need. We now feel it’s our duty to help where possible so that families in the same position we found ourselves in can have some happiness in there time of need.


About The Charity

ChildFlight provide flights and a holiday to Disney World Florida for sick and deserving children.

For example; children who require medical treatment abroad or who have missed out on childhood experiences, due to illness, or who are socially deserving.

ChildFlight is a children’s charity established in 1987. Based at Manchester Airport with representatives and strong fund raising links in the areas of Manchester, Blackpool, Wirral and the North West of England.

Whilst the voluntary team of ChildFlight provide the expertise, enthusiasm and administration, it is the generosity of many companies, organisations and individuals in raising and donating money.

This makes it possible to bring not only sunshine and fun into children’s lives, but a sense of wonder, adventure, laughter and much needed medical help.

We would be so grateful if you could dig deep and donate as much as you can to this amazing charity. Follow this link and we thank you for your support.

Radio Wave Charity Auction

About the Auction

Friday, 2nd December, was Radio Wave’s Charity Auction Day in aid The Pinpoint Prostate Cancer Appeal – raising funds to purchase specialist equipment for Blackpool Victoria Hospital, which will detect and pinpoint precise images of the sites of prostate cancer.

This will radically improve the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of prostate cancer for patients across the Fylde Coast.

It also means that local patients will no longer have to travel to Manchester to undergo certain procedures. Prostate cancer kills more than 10,000 men each year in the UK but, if detected early, there is every chance of making a full recovery.

Thank you to everyone who text donated to the day, made a bid on any of our items and to all the very generous friends and clients of Radio Wave who donated items for our auction.

Introduction to the team

Team Yabbitus is a group of friends from Blackpool, who are committed to supporting their local Children’s Hospice, Brian House.

They formed in 2012 and undertook their first challenge in May that year, when they cycled from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

The Children’s Hospice

Brian House cares for children and young people in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre who have life-limiting Illnesses. They provide respite care and support for families. It costs over £1.2 million a year to operate and Brian House is not part of the NHS – it is mostly funded from the Fylde Coast community.

The Mission

They aim to be a ‘force for good’ for Brian House Children’s Hospice through:

  • Creating awareness
  • Inspiring others to take action
  • Raising funds to help them be sustainable

What they have done so far

  • 2012 – Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower Paris, France
  • 2013 – Blackpool Tower to the Olympic Tower Munich, Germany
  • 2015 – Eiffel Tower, France to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

They have raised approximately £72k in their efforts so far and would love to get to £100k (cumulatively) by the time they complete their ride in June 2019.

This team is unique, as each year they have raised funds, they have self-funded and personally met all costs for the trip. That has meant that every single penny raised has gone straight into the pot for Brian House.

This is not just a financial sacrifice for the team – it is the time taken to make this happen. From time away from their families to planning and execution of the event which takes around 12 months to complete – there are also hundreds of hours training in the saddle needed to reach the required fitness levels.

What are they trying to do?

They have challenged themselves to try and cycle over 800 miles, through 7 Countries in Europe, in 7 days, aiming to get from Switzerland to Holland.

How you can help?

They will be holding various events throughout 2018 and 2019 to raise awareness and funds towards their goal and aim to inspire others to take action too.

They would love to tell you about opportunities to help Team Yabbitus achieve its goal in 2019, depending upon the sort of activity you would be interested in. This could range from sponsoring a shirt to donating a raffle prize, to helping them with a Minibus as a support vehicle.

Members of Team Yabbitus

In 2013, the Team were recognised through Blackpool Council’s ‘100 Acts of Kindness’ award scheme for their achievements to date.

In 2015, the Team were awarded a ‘Hero’s in the Community Award’ by their local Radio Station – Radio Wave. This was for services to Brian House through their efforts to fund raise and create awareness.

Blackpool Carers

Carers from age 5 to 18 are known as young carers and often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.

The tasks undertaken can vary according to the nature of the illness or disability, the level and frequency of need for care and the structure of the family as a whole.

A young carer may do some or all of the following:

  • Practical tasks, such as cooking, housework and shopping.
  • Physical care, such as lifting, helping a parent on stairs or with physiotherapy.
  • Personal care, such as dressing, washing, helping with toileting needs.
  • Managing the family budget, collecting benefits and prescriptions.
  • Administering medication.
  • Looking after or “parenting” younger siblings.
  • Emotional support.
  • Interpreting, due to a hearing or speech impairment or because English is not the family’s first language.
  • Some young carers may undertake high levels of care, whereas for others it may be frequent low levels of care. Either can impact heavily on a child or young person.

What happens when you join our service?

We will arrange a time and place where we can meet up and talk about what your needs are.

Speaking to us does not mean that you will be taken into care or that your parents will be in trouble. We are here to offer advice, support and information for you and your family.

All information you share with us is confidential (unless you are at risk of harm).

This means that we won’t tell anyone like parents, teachers, social workers or friends without talking to you about it first.

We just need your parent or guardian to sign a consent form so that you will be able to come out with us.

What do Young Carers’ Family Support Workers do?

Give advice and support if you have any problems such as personal or health problems or bullying that you want to talk about in confidence.

Organise free events and activities so you can get out and enjoy yourself and also meet other young carers who may be going through a similar experience to you.

If you have problems with school, then we can talk to your school to help them understand your situation and become more flexible with school work and homework.

Help you with any problems you may have with social services or health authorities.

Give you information about the condition of the person you care for, what their medication does to them and details of other organisations who can help and support you.

If you have any special hobbies or interests we can try and arrange for you to continue with these.

Organise young carers’ help groups which may help with feelings of low self esteem, anxiety or lack of confidence. Please follow this link and donate as much as you can.
