Young Entrepreneurs, Giving Back
Caring for the Elderly
Since April 2008, Super Jam has sponsored 120 tea parties for home-bound elderly people in Scotland, England, and Wales. Some of the events have hosted up to 600 guests, who enjoy live music, dancing and, of course, tea served with Super Jam and scones. Entrepreneur Fraser Doherty partners with community centers, schools, and workplaces, but funds the tea parties himself. The events, he says, are in honor of his Gran, who taught him how to make jam, and often brought her homemade scones and jam to elderly neighbors with her grandsons in tow.
