Giving back

Jem is very passionate about giving back and helping others.  Not everyone is as fortunate to be healthy and fit.  So, to help overcome adversity in whatever small way is important.

One charity challenge Jem undertook was to re-enact the World War II, ‘Hero’s of Telemark’ Raid in Norway in aid of the SBSA charity.  This was a huge success raising over £400,000 for the charity.

Jem supports the following charities
