Local Businessman Jon Neill Honoured with Culver Cares Award for his Outstanding Community Contributions

Culver Square Shopping Centre proudly announces Jon Neill, a respected local businessman, as the deserving recipient of the next Culver Cares Award, recognising his exceptional commitment to charitable endeavours and community service.

Despite his remarkable success as a businessman, Jon remains deeply dedicated to various charitable groups, actively engaging with organisations such as the Colchester Rotary Club and the Tom Bowlidge Foundation. In his unwavering support for these charities, Jon has organised and hosted significant events, including two successful music festivals where all ticket proceeds were donated to charity.

Not only does Jon demonstrate his community spirit through these charitable efforts, but he also shows remarkable care and compassion towards his staff. He goes above and beyond to provide personal support and practical assistance to his employees, even playing a pivotal role in preventing a staff member from facing homelessness.

David Robertson, Centre Manager of Culver Square, expressed his admiration for Jon’s contributions, stating, “Individuals within our community who possess the willingness and ability to help others are truly commendable. Jon’s unwavering commitment to both his business and philanthropic work epitomises the community spirit that makes Colchester a remarkable place.”
