Clarity Simplicity Continues To Support Teamjak
At Clarity Simplicity we are a company that is committed to making a positive impact. By supporting local charities like TeamJak, we are collectively able to make a difference in our community and encourage others to give back as well. TeamJak is a charity that is close to our heart, and we have been working hard to support this organisation in any way we can. From Kilt Walks, to Parachute jumps to baking cakes we come together in one strategy to make a significant impact of young people and their families whose lives are and have been affected by cancer.
Clarity Simplicity has shown its support for the local charity TeamJak by partnering with them in their mission to provide emotional and practical support to young people with cancer and related illnesses.
TeamJak was founded in memory of Jak Trueman, who lost his battle with a rare form of blood cancer at the young age of 15. His family established the charity to ensure that other young cancer patients and their families receive the support they need during what can be a challenging and isolating time.
Through their partnership, Clarity Simplicity has donated both time and money to the charity, helping them to continue their vital work. We have also encouraged all our employees to get involved in fundraising activities, such as charity walks, marathons and volunteering at Jak's Den, to raise awareness and funds for this amazing cause.
Clarity Simplicity's support for TeamJak is a testament to our commitment to social responsibility and community engagement. By partnering with local charities and causes, we believe that we are making a positive impact in the lives of others and helping to create a better future for all.
Jak was a normal happy healthy teenager, who enjoyed playing in goals with his local and county school football team, and playing tuba in his school band until August 2014 when he took suddenly and seriously ill. Devastatingly Jak was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer: Gamma Delta T-Cell Lymphoma. Five months later, Jak gained his wings. Throughout his illness, Jak demonstrated remarkable strength and positivity and showed extraordinary courage and selflessness. He raised nearly £100,000 for various cancer charities including CLIC, Sick Kids Friends Foundation, Bloodwise and Comic Relief while he was ill.
His desire to create a positive legacy grew, and six days before he died, Jak unveiled plans to support other young people walking the same journey.
He called his charity Team Jak and charged his Mum, Allison, with the job of building it and creating Jak’s Den – a purpose-built facility where young cancer patients and those with related illnesses, and their families and friends, could go to escape from the traumas of treatment and have fun in a clean and safe environment.
