Why We Support the Joshua Tree and How You Can Too!

Get involved and make a difference

In today’s blog post, we thought we’d do something a little bit different but massively important. Here at CB Homes, we love to give back to our community whenever we can. So, naturally, this leads us to support the fantastic cause we’re going to discuss today. Say hello to The Joshua Tree – you may have heard of them! If you haven’t, don’t worry. The Joshua Tree is an amazing charity based in Cheshire, just like our office and many of our properties. Although we could shout out about this charity every day of the week, this time is even more important than usual. The Joshua Tree has been chosen as one of Global Radio’s special charities, to be involved in their “Make Some Noise” charity campaign. The official “Make Some Noise” Day is this Friday – 5th October! But more information on that later…

Why do we support The Joshua Tree?

Well, where do we start? As we mentioned earlier, we enjoy giving back to our community and it’s important for us to support local community campaigns and organisations, like The Joshua Tree. This brilliant charity supports families who are going through the incredibly challenging experience of childhood cancer. Not only is The Joshua Tree a massively worthy cause but it’s also very close to us geographically. As we are based in Cheshire, we take a great interest in what happens in and around our local council, so it was a no-brainer that we show our support for the charity. What’s more, we have to mention how impressive it is that The Joshua Tree have built themselves up from nothing to this amazing organisation!

Supporting The Joshua Tree for “Make Some Noise Day” & “Strive to the Summits” challenge

But why are we really here today? Well, we wanted to bring some attention to the fantastic Make Some Noise campaign that The Joshua Tree is proudly a part of. If you’re wondering how they are getting involved, keep reading. Joshua, who originally inspired his parents to set up the charity after being diagnosed with childhood leukaemia, will be walking the famous Three Peaks challenge with Make Some Noise, starting in Snowdon. The team actually started yesterday and we’re wishing them the best of luck for completing the challenge tomorrow (Thurs 4th October)!

As for Make Some Noise day, that will follow on Friday 5th October. There will be challenges and events all across the UK. The charity is asking supporters to Dress Loud for the day, hoping people will sport their jazziest shirts and craziest colours. From schools to offices, Global Radio is hoping to raise plenty of money on the day to support the amazing charities that work so hard to make a difference in people’s lives. And you can help too!
