Action for Children
In addition to being our current main charity, Winmark has regularly supported Action for Children's Byte Night event with members of Winmark sleeping rough to raise money and awareness for homeless children. In addition to this, John Jeffcock, our CEO, is currently on the Byte Night Board and we also sponsor their membership of the Chief Executive Officer network.
Winmark supported SHS (School Home Support) as its main charity for two years (2009-2011) raising approximately £15,000 a year through a variety of activities and also made IT donations. Through the partnership with Winmark, SHS has also benefited from raised awareness of its cause among over 1,000 business directors.
Winmark has sponsored Red Cross UK membership of three networks, the Marketing Director, Finance Director and Chief Information Officer networks.
Through the publication of two books of War Poetry, John Jeffcock continues to raise funds and the awareness of ABF The Soldiers' Charity. 'Book of War' (Kassala Publishing) is available on Amazon and 'Heroes: the 100 Poems from the New Generation of War Poets' is available direct from Ebury Publishing (http://www.randomhouse.co.uk/editions/9780091946647).
