Helping children & families

Our Trustees are passionate about supporting children to help give them the best chances in life. We have worked with a range of partners such as the Ormiston Trust, local authority children’s services and Sawston’s schools to help achieve this.

JHC is especially proud of its good relations with all local schools and in the past has provided capital support for computers, libraries and a preschool (Pippins) at the Icknield School site.

And, in the late 1990s, the charity was instrumental in getting the Sawston Nursery project on JHC land under way. This purpose-built facility, with its wide access remit, really was a jewel in Sawston’s crown when it opened in 2000 and continues to make a significant contribution to the community.
