We support every good cause we possibly can through donations and active participation.

A message from John..

I started JR Pat Testing in 2014 as a one-man band. Over the years the business has grown into a national company, providing PAT and other core compliance services. We also deliver E-Learning in over 100 accredited courses covering a wide range of subjects from Fire Marshalling to Mental Health Awareness, Social Media, and Business Development.

 
I am delighted with our Shout Out Community section on our website where we Shout Out about great causes, enterprises, charities, and people. We welcome any groups, individuals and SME’s who would like us to champion them.
 
My proudest moment is every day when I talk with my team and thank my lucky stars I am working with such wonderful people. I am also so lucky to have such a great army of engineers all over the country. 
 
I sincerely appreciate you all.
 
Best Regards John

Help for Heroes

We are a charity that help the Armed Forces community live well after service.

Life can be tough when a military career comes to an end, especially if it has been cut short by illness or injury.

Overnight, people lose not only their job, but also a support network that is like family.

There are many ways we help veterans, their relatives, serving personnel, and people who worked alongside the UK military.

We help people with their physical and mental health needs, and a range of welfare issues.

Rogue Debby Crash Test

We met in an online support group during Lockdown. We connected. We helped each other. We decided more people needed this in their lives.
Rogue Debby CIC was born.
Fast forward to now and our online peer-support groups are connecting people from as far as Scotland down to Australia…
We help each other live, thrive and do more than survive with the mental & physical symptoms of Chronic Illnesses and we do it with humour and grace.
Our groups and gigs are free… we create art to fund our work, so if you know someone who could benefit from peer-support…
BUY OUR ART and let them know we exist!

Climate Action Project in Western Kenya

Hundreds of thousands are on the move in Eastern Africa. Three years of failed harvests followed by this year’s drought have decimated their farms. Where cattle grazed now there are only carcasses, the communities are heading for towns and camps in the hope of food aid. They flee across borders to regions of neighbouring Kenya – which are affected by the same drought.

Fundraiser for Tommy's, the baby charity

We needed to run for a charity that meant a lot to all of us.. and Tommy’s was the perfect choice.

 

We all carry in our heart and memory babies and their families. As midwives we have seen the pain of miscarriage and stillbirth first hand. These babies are never forgotten but stigma often prevents others from talking about these babies. Tommy’s do a fantastic job for women and their families going through the tragedy of loss as well as the joy and fears of a rainbow pregnancy. 

 

Tommy’s provide expert advice and fund pioneering research to prevent stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth. Your sponsorship allows Tommy’s to continue their vital work – in short you’re helping save babies’ lives.

Please give generously, your support means the world to us.

St Nicholas Priory

Founded in 1087, St Nichoals Priory is the oldest building in the city of Exeter. It was originally used as a monastery by monks of the Benedictine order who stayed there for over five centuries. Sold by The Crown following the dissolution of the order by King Henry VIII, the property was then purchased by Robert Mallet who leased it out as a prestigious townhouse. The estate passed into the ownership of a religious institution again in 1775 when it was taken over by the Roman Catholic Mission. Restored to reflect much of its original splendour, the Priory is now a Grade 1 listed building and recognised heritage site.

Now run by Exeter Historic Buildings Trust (EHBT), St Nicholas Priory has now been made accessible to the public to visit. You can explore the priory for free on Sundays and Mondays, and thy run many events throughout the year. You can also book a private tour or a school visit, and you can even get married here.

As a registered charity, EHBT relies on donations to continue to keep the building open for the public to enjoy.
