Thank You

Team JIT would like to say a big thank you to all those who supported our efforts to raise funds for the Butterfly Trust.

We completed the 5K Big Fun Run at Glasgow's Bellahouston Park on Saturday 29th July and managed to smash our fundraising target in the process.


JIT are Raising Funds for The Butterfly Trust

The team at JIT are in training for the Big Fun Run Glasgow to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis charity the Butterfly Trust.

The Butterfly Trust provides practical help, emotional support and counselling to the Cystic Fibrosis community in Scotland.  It is a charity very close to our hearts as my nephew was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth.  He is now 4 and starts school in August.  He is doing well and doesn't let his illness stand in his way or stop him from doing anything other kids his age do.  He is an amazing little boy but we wanted to acknowledge the help we have been given by the Butterfly Trust and do what we can to raise some much needed funds to ensure they continue to provide help to others with Cystic Fibrosis.

All services offered by the Butterfly Trust are confidential and provided free of charge. For more information visit www.butterflytrust.org.uk

If you would like to support our fundraising efforts you can donate via our Just Giving Page - www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Team-JIT

All donations are greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
