Supporting the JET charity

Ascent is a proud supporter of the Jon Egging Trust, an organisation that offers long-term support to vulnerable young people who are struggling to engage at school and may have lost focus, confidence and self-belief.

Ascent offers the Trust access to our staff and facilities to host a variety of Blue Skies events, along with help for JET students, including CV writing and confidence building activities.

In May, members of our team attended a very successful clay pigeon shoot, which raised more than £28,000 for JET, helping the charity realise its expansion ambitions in Oxfordshire and Hampshire.

And on 24 September, Ascent is sponsoring the charity’s flagship fundraising event, JETRide 2023. This is a popular annual cycling sportive, that starts and finishes at RAFC Cranwell and travels 60 or 100 miles along the RAF Heritage Trail.
