Jumping Jacks were overjoyed to win the Regional Princes Trust Enterprise Award for the North West in November 2013, but imagine our surprise when we were shortlisted for the national finals of this prestigious award! It was a red carpet event with lunch at the Radisson Blu Hampshire Hotel in London, the awards ceremony at the Odeon Leicester Square & then a celebration for all afterwards back at the Radisson not Blu Hampshire Hotel. It’s not every day you get to walk on the famous red carpet at Leicester Square and get to meet Prince Charles HRH, it really was a day to remember!
We never expected for one minute the possibilities of winning the award & we were simply over the moon to have been shortlisted as a finalist & enjoy the once in a lifetime experience. Imagine our surprise when the award sponsor from RBS, Gabby Logan (TV Presenter) & Howard Charles (Actor) took the stage, read out the three finalists names, shown some very heartfelt footage & finally announced the name of Jumping Jacks Founder “Lucie Campbell”. Lucie (Founder) & Sara (Company Director) were overcome with emotions & even had a little cry before Lucie managed to compose herself & walk onto the stage to greet the amazing Ant & Dec (who gave Lucie a little peck on the cheek), RBS sponsors & then be honoured with receiving the award from Prince Charles who shook Lucie’s hand & even took time to ask Lucie all about Jumping Jacks, where she was from & also congratulate Lucie on winning the award.
Prince Charles was charming & it really was an honour to meet him. He said “Jumping Jacks looks like lots of fun” and Gabby Logan said “Maybe he could bring Prince George along to one of your classes”. Lucie said “It really was one of the best moments of my life and I will never forget this day!”.
“Since winning the award it has been overwhelming to receive such positive feedback from the community. Jumping Jacks really has an amazing team and Lucie, Sara and the rest of the team hope to make Jumping Jacks even bigger & better and we are happy that our hard work, dedication, passion & love for what we do really shines through!”.
Jumping Jacks look forward to seeing what the future holds for their amazing business.
