Reaching New Heights
The Park Lane Group helped The JPK Project reach new heights this month in the charity’s bid to raise funds to create a Supported Living Centre in Eastbourne for individuals with learning disabilities.
Mark Bennett (pictured left) a Trustee of the JPK Project, and Julie Bennett, completed a 100m abseil down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic Spinnaker Tower on May 3rd.
They were part of a group of 20 thrill-seekers from Eastbourne who completed the abseil, raising over £3,000 for the charity so far.
Following extensive fundraising, The JPK Project bought a site in 2012 – former Edgmond Church in Old Town – and secured planning permission to develop a Supported Living Centre. This will incorporate 24 en-suite apartments, a kitchen, dining room, living area and activity room. It will also feature a Centre which will be open to the public, comprising a coffee shop, bakery and charity shop. The JPK Project will provide accommodation for individuals with learning difficulties and day activities for non-resident individuals. To find out more, please visit: http://www.thejpkproject.co.uk/
