JMC Custom Paintwork Donate to Craig Breen Foundation support for J1000

The Craig Breen Foundation team are pleased to announce the receipt of a donation of £4,853 from Jordan McCann of JMC Custom Paintwork based in Loughall, Co. Armagh, being the proceeds of two raffles run by Jordan in January 2024.

 



Jordan very kindly approached the foundation in January and offered the proceeds of a raffle to mark the occasion of his 500th painted helmet. Tickets for the raffle sold out in under 1 hour, leading to a second raffle being organised within days.

 

We would like to thank Jordan for his time, effort and exceptional generosity in organising the raffles, putting up the prizes and donating the proceeds to the foundation. The donation comes with perfect timing, just ahead of Round 1 of the J1000 Forestry series the Killarney Forestry rally this weekend. We plan to run a similar raffle at the beginning of each year where the winner will get their helmet custom painted by Jordan, including a special Craig Breen Foundation logo.

 

JMC are your one stop shop for helmet sales, helmet paintwork and helmet design should it be graphically or sketched. Contact Jordan at +44 7764 848481 or Jordanmcc77@gmail.com
