Supporting Our Wider Society.


At J7e, we believe that giving back to the community is an essential part of doing business. That’s why we’re proud to partner with ‘Please take me there’, a charity that helps children affected by cancer in the UK access lifesaving treatments.
Through our support, we hope to make a difference in the lives of children and families facing tough times. We also strive to raise awareness about the importance of cancer research and treatment and the hardship that such a diagnosis can have on families. By working together, we believe our partnership can have a tangible impact on overcoming the difficulties families face with this disease.

Esmé's story

In Norfolk, Wendy discovered that her one-year-old, Esmé, has developed a rare brain tumour. Esmé is the youngest child of four. Her older siblings are 3, 6 and 14.

Wendy has been studying for a BA in counselling, and her husband, Aaron, is a self-employed painter and decorator. Esmé’s diagnosis shatters their world. Aaron gives up work to care for their eldest three children, while Wendy gives up her studies to make frequent trips to hospitals.

Over the next 19 months, Wendy travels to and from Addenbrooke’s over 200 times. Each return journey is more than 100 miles long. Not counting the trips caused by temperature spikes, Esmé also has to make weekly visits to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn. That’s more than 80 visits of over 30 miles each time. Esmé and her family have travelled over 14,000 miles for specialist medical care in less than two years. That’s five times the distance from Los Angeles to New York.

Each trip costs £20 in parking and petrol, leaving very little for the family to survive. Without a regular source of income from either parent, they just about manage to pay their monthly rent. And because their car is in constant use, it needs new tyres and maintenance. That’s another £2,000 for them to whip up out of nowhere.

By day, Wendy and Aaron do the best they can for their children. They write funding applications to charities and trusts by night, hoping for a break. For two years, they have lived in a constant state of stress over the welfare of their children and their untenable financial situation. And who knows what impact all this will have on their own precarious well-being.

Their loved ones organise a fundraiser that will help the family for the next two years. But not everyone is lucky enough to have such a network of support.

Please take me there was able to support Esmé, partly due, in a small way, to the corporate sponsorship of J7 International and other local companies in the East of England.
