Thank you

A huge thank you to all the organisations who, through their support and fundraising efforts, help us to provide all our services for free.

Here are some of their stories.

Aztec

Aztec Group have sponsored our Christmas Tree recycling initiative since 2014 after Joanna Hewlett, the Group’s Head of Human Resources and a loyal Christmas tree collection volunteer, suggested the Group’s involvement.

Joanna commented: ‘The scheme is a great way to pull the community together in a considerable fundraising effort, and Aztec Group’s support has been invaluable to the way in which it has developed over the years. All the funds go to a worthy cause and has the added benefit of helping the environment too.’

 

BNP Paribas

We have been extremely fortunate that BNP Paribas have chosen Jersey Hospice Care as their charity of the year for over seven years.

Their staff have raised thousands for us, through a variety of fundraising events and their give as you earn scheme. They also have regular Corporate team volunteering days with us, working in our gardens and Beau Pre shop at St Ouen and are frequently seen at the Dragon Boat Festival.

C5 Alliance and Switch Digital

Local technology firm, C5 Alliance has worked in collaboration with leading creative digital agency, Switch Digital to improve the performance of our website.

Switch Digital changed the hosting platform for the site, upgrading the standard and making it 7.9 times faster than the old site. The firm also sponsor the hosting and ongoing website maintenance and support as part of its community commitment.

C5 Alliance has also provided us with free Business Continuity (BC) services that will protect us in times of crisis.

Condor Ferries

Condor Ferries has sponsored our Dragon Boat Festival since it started in 1997. Since then, it’s raised over £650,000 for Jersey Hospice Care.

With no experience needed – just loads of enthusiasm – the festival has become a fantastic event for groups of friends and colleagues, where you can expect to enjoy a fun day out with a great carnival atmosphere.

The challenge is not so much the paddling technique, but in trying to synchronise with the other paddlers in your boat.

Mitchell Building Contractors

We’re delighted that Mitchell Building Contractors have sponsored several events this year, acting as main sponsor for the tenth Jayson Lee 10K Memorial Run and our festive Santa Dash, as well as supporting one of our Hospice Huddles.

They took part in the Condor Ferries’ Dragon Boat Festival for the first time this year, coming out as overall winners!

Their support has been invaluable, covering the event costs, meaning that all the money raised helps us to care for our patients, enabling them to live life to the full.

Voisins

Since 2016, over £20,000 has been raised for four local charities, including Jersey Hospice Care, through Pennies in Voisins.

This simple fundraiser is a great way to support four local charities when you shop in store using your card.

Pennies is the digital charity box. It gives your small change a big purpose – allowing you to donate a few pence to charity when you pay by card in shops, online and in apps. It’s your choice every time, with no pressure, and no follow up.
