SWELL START TO CHRISTMAS FOR JON

January 8, 2014

Tearing into presents, preparing a festive feast, rocking around the Christmas tree – that’s what Christmas morning means for most people. Not so for Hurst Plastics’ customer Jon Dickson of Kings Lynn based J&K Glass. He braved the bitterly cold North Sea on a very blustery Christmas morning to raise money for the Rudham Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn.

 

Dressed for the occasion in a striking (but hardly warm) hula girl outfit, determined Jon took on the challenge of the annual Hunstanton Christmas Swim in a bid to raise at least £1,000 for the unit which cared for his son who was struck down with viral meningitis at just two days old. And Hurst Plastics was only too pleased to sponsor his heroic effort to the tune of £250. Further donations have flooded in since the swim and Jon and his fellow hula girls have now raised nearly £2,000.

 

Mark Atkinson, Sales Director at Hurst Plastics, said: “We have worked closely with the team at J&K Glass throughout the last year and built up a great rapport with Jon. We were really impressed when we heard about the challenge that he was going to take on and were delighted to support him in raising money for such a worthwhile cause. We congratulate Jon on his success, it must have been excruciating in such cold weather!.”

 

Jon added: “It was very, very cold! I was determined to conquer this challenge and raise money for the unit to thank them for the wonderful care they provided for my son, Jarvis. He is three months old now and, thanks to their dedication, he has recovered extremely well from this terrifying virus.”

 

The money Jon raises will be used to buy new toys for the ward.
